What organizers are calling the “downtown fall festival” will be featured in Trenton Saturday afternoon and evening. The Trenton Downtown Improvement Association is sponsoring various activities from 2 o’clock until 7 o’clock.
The location is at, or near, Sesquicentennial Park. Several vendors are expected to set
up with crafts and food items. There’s a children parade at 2 o’clock Saturday.
Wheel barrow races are planned at 5 o’clock on Main Street. Entertainment
is planned beginning at 2 o’clock from the gazebo in the park. The performers in order
are Judy Hanson, Chelsea Woodard, Laurie Franklin and Jenny; Melinda Hogan; Mandi and Jeremy Ripple; and concluding with the North 65 line dancers. A spokesperson for Citizen’s Bank and Trust said the movie is “Big Miracle.”
It’s described as a family movie about a whale. Persons attending are asked to
take a lawn chair or a blanket to sit on. There’s no charge to view the entertainment or
movie. As a fund-raiser for the association, tickets are sold in a raffle for prizes
donated by merchants. (To clarify the drawing is actually Sunday of Missouri Day
Festival) Proceeds go to beautification projects downtown including purchase of trash
cans. A campaign also is forthcoming on the purchase of additional memorial benches
for downtown locations.
