2017 blueberry-picking season has started!

20120711-080244.jpg

Blueberry season has started! Here in Maryville we have an excellent organic blueberry farm called Falls Farms. Their orchard is over 30 years old and has never been sprayed with pesticides. They encourage you to “eat as you go!” and are proud that they are chemical-free.

The best time to pick blueberries locally is usually in July and August, and I’ve heard reports that the berries are delicious now!
You can find Falls Farms at 111 Harmon Road, Maryville, TN 37804, across from the drive-in movies.

Phone: 865-982-3457

Open: July and August, Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday,
from 6:30 am to 8:30 pm; Closed Wednesdays and Fridays.

Cost: Last year blueberries were $1.50/pound, cash only. Please let me know if you find this has changed.

Whether you’re going alone or for a field trip with your kids, you’ll have a great time. We love picking blueberries here every year!

AMC Summer Movie Schedule – possibly at our AMC Foothills 12 movie theater?

AMC Theatres has announced its 2017 Summer Movie Camp lineup, available at AMC Classic theater locations. Since our Foothills Mall movie theater is now “AMC Foothills 12” they may be participating…but I haven’t been able to confirm that yet. Since Foothills is not titled as a “Classic” theater, they may not be participating in any summer movie promotions. This is going to take a little more detective work on my part.  Please contact the movie theater directly to be sure Foothills is participating before you head out with your kids next week! If not, the Knoxville AMC Classic Knoxville 16 at 200 North Peters Road will definitely be offering Summer Movie Camp, and you can see their schedule here.

As part of Summer Movie Camp, AMC theatres offer $4 admission, which includes a ticket and a Kidspack with popcorn, fountain drink and FrootiTooti fruit snacks.

The summer movie camp lineup features:

  • THE LORAX
  • TROLLS
  • THE SECRET LIFE OF PETS
  • HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON
  • PUP STAR
  • SING
  • HOME
  • DESPICABLE ME
  • THE PEANUTS MOVIE
