What are you doing next Saturday, April 27?

We have a fantastic festival planned for you and your family. Make plans to join us from 10:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m. We’ll have hotlink and sausage tastings, food, and entertainment from different cultures, the Load Trail midway for the kids, vendors, and a full day of show on the Century 21 Premier Group stage. You’ll enjoy cultural entertainment from 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. and an exceptional performance by the Pittsburg Guitar Orchestra from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. This is a Festival you won’t want to miss!
