EudoraFest vendors once again will populate Main Street

September 24, 2009

EudoraFest is a big and busy day for those at Pyle Meat Co. But it also gives them an opportunity to catch up with friends from around the area.

“You just get to see so many people,” said Roberta Lehmann of Pyle Meat Co. “I love the fact that the whole community comes together for it.”

Lehmann said that Pyle Meat Co. has been serving at EudoraFest for about eight years or so, and it will be one of several food vendors at this year’s EudoraFest on Oct. 3.

The meat company will be serving smoked house sausages, and potatoes and onions, which Lehmann said has traditionally been a big draw.

“At nine in the morning, as soon as it’s open people are wanting the potatoes and the onions,” Lehmann said.

Lehmann said they would have a limited menu and soda and bottled water also would be served. Craft and food vendors will be located on Main Street.

“Everybody just kind of pitches in together and it’s kind of a little community affair,” Lehmann said. “We have friends who will walk by and they’ll stop what they’re doing and come and help us. That’s been known to happen several years.

“If we’re getting really, really hammered with customers and have a long line, we’ll have friends who’ll be seeing how busy we are and help.”

In addition to the various food vendors, the Eudora United Methodist Church is having a pancake breakfast from 7 to 10 a.m. in the concession stand at CPA Park.
