There will be a working blacksmith and soap maker.
There will be games with prizes, a corn husking contest, face painting and a scavenger hunt. The Big Foot Band led by Jerry Erickson with members of his family will provide three live music sets during the day. Food will be available for purchase from Jr’s No. 19 BBQ.
