On Saturday, October 24, the Bearfootin’ Auction takes place in downtown Hendersonville. Since spring, the sidewalks have featured artistically decorated bears as part of the annual public-art display. This month, the bears hit the auction block to benefit local nonprofits. Everyone is invited to come bid on a bear. Bidder registration & music begins at 2:30pm, and the live auction commences at 4:30pm at the Historic Courthouse on Main.
