All of these activities are free with the exception of the pony rides, which cost $1 and will help raise money for 4-H. Food will be available for purchase and all food booths will be operated by not-for-profit children’s groups such as 4-H, Girl Scouts and various high school organizations.
Attendance at last year’s festival topped 2,000 and organizers are expecting an even larger crowd this year.
