“Honoring Our Agricultural Heritage” is the theme of this year’s festival. Opening ceremonies start with presentation of the colors by local Boy Scouts. Elizabeth Gibson will sing “The Star Spangled Banner”. Sharon Jaharus of the Foursquare Church at Trenton will give the invocation.

These include coloring/drawing contest, yard decorating, window and entryway decorating and hay bale decorating.

Following the opening ceremonies, members of the Trenton High School Choir present a fall concert.
