CLEVELAND, Tenn. - One of Tennessee's longest running annual storytelling festivals holds its 16th edition today.

The Ocoee Story Fest will be at Cleveland State Community College at 7 p.m.

On Thursday national award winning teller Lyn Ford visited some Bradley County schools to tell tales from her family's heritage. Ford is from Columbus, Ohio and has performed in 29 states and international storytelling festivals in Ireland.

The festival here, second in length only to the annual festival in Jonesborough, is organized by the Cleveland Storytelling Guild and funded through the Allied Arts Council of the Cleveland/Bradley Chamber of Commerce.
