Knoxville — This weekend will be packed with activity throughout Knoxville, and there are many opportunities to volunteer.
The Knoxville Regional Livestock Market will host the Livestock Marketing Association's Would Livestock Auctioneer Championships on Saturday. The market will welcome the 31 best auctioneers in the world, who will compete for the title by auctioning off 4,500 cattle. Meanwhile, with the numbers of people who will be in town, the Knoxville Chamber of Commerce is seeking hosts to help with the event. To volunteer, and for more information, call the Chamber at 641-828-7555.
