Mabel Fall Festival postponed until Oct. 25

The fall festival at Mabel School is being postponed until next Friday, Oct. 25, Watauga County Schools announced Friday. It was originally scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 19.  

The postponement is due to a water problem at the school. Principal Mark Hagaman is using the Alert Now automated phone messaging system to notify Mabel families about the change in schedule.

Watauga County Schools spokesman Marshall Ashcraft said the problem was due to a pump failure in the well that supplies the school's water. It did not affect classes Friday.

The problem is expected to be repaired this weekend, with school resuming on a normal schedule Monday, Ashcraft said.
