Once again there will be a Car & Bike Show with registration from 10am-12pm at Gary's Hot Rods on the corner of 2nd & Pine and the Show & Shine from 12-4pm.
The hamburger stand will open immediately after the parade in the west gym of the school and run late into the evening. They will be serving their famous hamburgers, potato salad, and homemade pies.
The evening events will start at 5:30pm. The Queen and her court will be presented and the prize winning decorated cakes will be auctioned. Enjoy the music of Mohanna with Red Shoes, from 5:30-7:30pm. Throughout the evening winners of the handmade quilt and other prizes will be announced.
Community spirit prevails as people gather at this annual event, always the 1st Saturday of October, for great food, a chance to view our area school bands, floats by local churches and organizations, and best of all – an opportunity to visit and renew friendships with former friends and neighbors and meet people new to the community.
The funds from this day are used to support the care and upkeep of the Cedarview Cemetery, located northwest of Doniphan.
