Wartburg gears up for 2019 Mountain Laurel Festival

Downtown Wartburg will be a busy place Friday evening and Saturday, as the Morgan County Tourism Alliance (MCTA) is gearing up for the Fifth Annual Tennessee Mountain Laurel Festival.

“We are excited and  I think we’re ready,” MCTA member Marta Monroe said. “I think people will miss something if they don’t come.”

The festival has been a one-day (Saturday) event in years past, but that is changing in 2019 as several events have been added for Friday evening at the Morgan County Courthouse.
