North Judson Mint Festival Kicks Off Today

The North Judson Mint Festival begins today!

The carnival opens at 5 p.m. and fair-goers can enjoy music from the band 30 South from 5 to 7 p.m. at Norwayne Field. The winner of the Father and Grandfather of the Year awards will be announced at 7 p.m. at Norwayne Field, and music from Half Track will follow that ceremony.

The Mint Idol Contest and the Guitar Hero contest have been canceled this year. Look for those features in next year’s festival.

Plenty of other activities are scheduled during the three-day festival. We’ll highlight more events in tomorrow’s news.
