This event has been taking place for many years. I've dubbed it the "Great Mennonite Fair." Please be assured that the Friday night musical groups are exceptional and great entertainment for the entire family. Some children's activities include festival games, a children's train, an auction for children 13 and under. Bungee jumping is available to attendees of all ages.
