Section, Alabama is on a land where the Cherokee once hunted and lived. There were communities such as Kirby Creek, Gossets Hollow, and Fern Cliff. These communities came together to form the Town of Section. Pioneer settlers came in 1962 to Section, in large numbers. Settlers were required to live on the land for five years before claiming the property as their own. Section was officially incorporated in August 1910. The Town began a Labor Day Celebration in 1974, and has been an annual event making it 36 years in 1910. The festivities are free, except for food. The kid's rides are free, the stage entertainment is free, and the day ends with a street dance that is fun for the whole family. We invite everyone out for a great time.
