The dresses were flowing and
the men dapper as the 42nd Abraham Lincoln National Railsplitting
Festival got under way with a grand Civil War Ball on Friday
evening. Couples learned a few new dances and enjoyed an evening of
at the Lincoln Park District Rec Center.
Saturday and Sunday 10 a.m.-4 p.m. at the Logan County Fairgrounds,
families will find plenty more fun with bluegrass jams, numerous
displays of the
pioneer way of life and working crafts, the Route 66
Antique Car Show, food, crafts, flea market and antique vendors.
On Saturday, the highlight of the day is the opening of the railsplitting competition.
Late afternoon at 5 features a who-done-it play followed by an
old-fashioned barn dance for all beginning at 7 p.m.
schedule for more details.
