Chamber of Commerce Hosts Spirit of Pulaski County Festival

spirit of pulaski countyDon’t miss your chance to join in on the Spirit of Pulaski County Festival tomorrow. The festival, formerly known as German Fest, had a name change in order to be able to include different things and be more all encompassing.

The day will begin with a pancake and sausage breakfast at the Fire Station from 7:30 until 10:30 am.

This year the festival will feature a Spirit Walk and Spirit Ride in memory of local domestic abuse victim Tina Kasten and all domestic abuse fatalities. These events also serve as a way to honor the strength of domestic violence survivors.

Registration for the Spirit Walk starts at 8 am and the cost is $25 per walker. The spirit walk will begin at 8:30 am. Registration for the Spirit Ride is at 10 :30 am. The cost is $25 per rider and an additional $10 per passenger. The Spirit Ride will take off at 11 am.

Proceeds collected from the walk will be put into a scholarship fund set up in the name of Tina Kasten’s and money collected from the ride will be donated to the North Central Indiana Rural Crisis Center. Donations for both the crisis center and the scholarship fund can also be made directly to the Pulaski County Chamber of Commerce located at 102 N Monticello St. in Winamac.

From noon until midnight there will be a beer garden sponsored by One Eyed Jack’s. Vendors will be there offering food, drinks and crafts. At 1:30 registration for the corn hole tournament starts and the tournament will commence at 2 pm. At 3 pm WKVI’s very own Mary Perren will be one of the judges for the Karaoke Contest. Pre-register for the contest at One Eyed Jack’s.

From 7 pm until midnight the Wishbone Blues Band & Soul Flyer will provide musical entertainment.

Event times listed are all in Eastern Standard Time. There is no admission fee and all events except for the Fire Department breakfast will be in the train depot parking lot. Set aside some time this Saturday to attend the Spirit of Pulaski County!
