KNOXVILLE (WATE) - Families visiting downtown Knoxville this weekend got a chance to learn more about the region's history.
The East Tennessee History Center sponsored the Sixth Annual East Tennessee History Fair Saturday.
It was held in Krutch Park.
There was live music, crafts, booths, bus tours, and Civil War re-enactors.
6 News talked to Lisa Sexton, a teacher at Bearden Middle School, who said she offered her students extra credit for attending.
Sexton said, "It's a great chance to learn about the local culture in Tennessee and the history behind everything. It's just a great family oriented activity to do."
