(WBIR) It was a bittersweet day in downtown Maryville on Sunday as a big tradition came to a close.

The Foothills Fall festival has been a staple of the fall season in East Tennessee for 15 years.

"A lady who comes here every year for her birthday, she's eighty years old this weekend. And we have people in their seventies and 80s waiting in line who have been coming here for more than ten years," Jane Groff, with the city of Maryville, said.

Sunday is the last time the curtain will rise for the Foothills Fall Festival, and organizers are planning to go out with a bang.

Community relations manager Jane Groff said the city is looking to book a series of events in the future to help fill the void left behind by the festival, but they're not sure what that will be at this time.
