Organizers for the Yellowstone Trail Festival in Hamlet in August are getting things ready for the big event.
Bands have been contacted for entertainment and new events will be held including a corn hole tournament, Red Cross Citizens CPR and the appearance of the Emergency Response Vehicle and the blood mobile. More contests that will be featured include tug-of-war, pie eating, arm wrestling and more. The car show will be returning as well as the town-wide yard sales. A fashion show and pageant, a mounted gunrunners demo, a trail ride, karaoke contest and more are also planned.
If you are interested in helping with the festival, attend the next meeting on May 8 in the basement of the Hamlet Catholic Church at 6:30 p.m. CT. The Yellowstone Trail Fest is August 16-18 in Hamlet at the Starke County 4-H Fairgrounds.
