TRUSSVILLE — The city of Trussville dedicated the Trussville Entertainment District (TED) on Tuesday, Oct. 27, 2020.
The official celebration of the newly renovated area was attended by city and state leaders including Mayor Buddy Choat, council members, Rep. Danny Garrett, Sen. Shay Shelnutt, Jefferson County Commissioner Joe Knight and Trussville City Schools Superintendent Dr. Pattie Neill.
Choat said the celebration was a way for the city to show appreciation to everyone who has been involved in the development of the downtown area.
“It’s very gratifying to look back and see how far we have come,” Choat said. “But it’s not for me, it’s for the city and the citizens of Trussville and the families.”
Choat hopes the TED continues to grow and bring people to the city of Trussville.
Full Moon BBQ catered the event. Also in attendance was Roy Book, “The Flag Guy.”
The city also held a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the TED.
