The upcoming Brookneal Fest has been rescheduled to Saturday, Oct. 12, 9:30 a.m. - 5:30 p.m. During the planning sessions, it came to light that the original date of September 7 would conflict with the North Halifax Volunteer Fire Department’s annual fundraising Marathon that will also celebrate the 42nd anniversary of the department. “There’s no way we want to conflict with that,” says Brookneal Chamber of Commerce Vice President Wayne Tribble.
