Families with children will find the convenience of local schools a plus. Waco students are part of the Haralson County School System and attend Tallapoosa Primary School, West Haralson Elementary School, Haralson County Middle School, and Haralson County High School. The city is close to Bremen and the Bremen City School System as well.
One example of Waco’s hometown charm is the city’s annual Fall Fest, held each year on the second Saturday in September. Festivalgoers enjoy a morning parade featuring high school bands from Bremen, Haralson County, and Mount Zion, followed by food, entertainment, vendors, games, and lots more. Free activities for children are available all day, and the event ends with a street dance. Waco Fall Fest is one of the region’s most popular festivals and a highlight of the year for local residents.
