Two dinners planned for 2014 Fall Festival

A walleye dinner will be served on Sunday afternoon, August 31, from 4 to 7 p.m. This Walleye dinner is being served and sponsored by the Common Ground.

A chicken dinner will be served at the festival on Saturday afternoon, August 30, from 4 to 7 p.m. The chicken dinner is being served and sponsored by the Olde Towne Bar & Grill. Each of these dinners will be served with two sides.

The regular food stand line will be open, with the usual menu available, for those not wanting the full dinner. If you are interested in helping serve one or both of these dinners, please contact Janet Zimmer at 244-8892.


An elaborate display of fireworks will once again be presented at the 2014 Delavan Fall Festival. The Delavan Fall Festival has contracted with Central States Fireworks. Fireworks will be held in Lake Park at dusk on SUNDAY night, August 31. At the request of festivalgoers, a couple of years ago, the festival board made this change of day for the fireworks. The change in schedule was well received so the 2014 fireworks display will remain on SUNDAY night.

Grab your blanket and/or lawn chair and come join the excitement of all the colorful fireworks display. See you there.
