Talent show, crafters returning to EudoraFest
Last year's talented addition to EudoraFest is back for an encore. The talent show will return to the community-wide event, slated for Oct. 4. The talent show will begin at 3:30 p.m.
Also returning to the festival will be craft booths lining Main Street from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. As of Sept. 5, 34 booths had been sold.
An opening ceremony kicking off the event will be at 10 a.m. Musical acts will include The Country Gentlemen from 1 to 2 p.m., and from 2 to 3:30 p.m. Allen Cunningham will perform children's music, and a children's cake walk will be included.
The EudoraFest will include several new activities like a beauty pageant at 10:30 a.m. and a stock garden tractor and lawn mower pull at noon. Registration for the tractor pull begins at 11 a.m. Participants must have a release form signed the day of the event.
The stock garden tractor and lawn mower pull will have several classes, ranging from as many 600 pounds to 1,000 pounds.
The EudoraFest organizational committee will meet each Thursday between Sept. 11 and the event. The meetings are at 7 p.m. at Mutual Savings Association, Eighth and Main streets.
