Everything about this years 89er's Day Celebration was well done and exciting. The vendors in the park came early to check in and present their quality wares. The food trucks and baked goods at the park had a variety of tasty choices.
The feature of the day were the participants in the parade, honor guard, bands, ball teams, floats, roundup clubs, local and county public service providers and more.
So many highlights it’s difficult to choose.
Always enjoyable was the car show and the opportunity to the hear stories from proud owners about the restoration process. Congratulations to Danny Wilson for winning The “BEST IN SHOW” award. 12 kids was able to take home a brand new bike, without all the car show participants this would not be possible.
Lots of fun activities for the children, pony rides, petting zoo, inflatables, fun! Entertainers on stage and the ball court featured our students in vocal music, band, and dance plus local very talented musicians.

Art Show - New This Year!
This year we had the Third, Second and First Graders at the Lexington Elementary compete in the first 89ers Day Art Show. We rewarded a pizza party to the top ones in each class and gave ribbons to the top three in each grade. These kids came up with some great posters that were displayed at the Festival. I’ve attached the display of everyone’s posters along with the winning posters in each grade. Thank you to all the teachers, Mrs. Skaggs, Mrs. Keeler and the students for making this awesome.

The cold wind didn’t hinder those who came to celebrate the heritage of our town.
