Gieselman said the board members are bringing the Fall Festival back to what it was in years past. “It’s going to be a little more relaxed then it was last year. Last year we had the traveling Vietnam Memorial Wall, which was an excellent event to come through. This year it is going to be more like what everybody is used to.”

The festival is going to be packed full of games, contests, and entertainment for the whole family. “We are going to have wrist band days, the veterans salute, and the kids parade and it’s always fun to watch them get all dressed up and walk through. Then we’ll have a baby health contest, the kids country contest, a 5k run, tractor pulls, a classic-antiques car show, and live entertainment from Randall and Helen Russell who play variations of classic country, rock and roll, and gospel music. Also we’re very excited this year, Jesse Lee a Native American performer and his group out of Knob Noster, are going to come and do some traditional song and dance.” said Gieselman.
