The Mount Pulaski Courthouse will be opened from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Tours will be available. On the lower level of the Courthouse there will be a display of the 2013-2014 MPGS Third Graders highlighting their Community Project that helped the Courthouse raise $610.00 this past December.

Upstairs there will be a MPGS Art Show. The first and third graders were asked to color and/or draw the Courthouse for a contest. A panel of judges is currently narrowing the pictures down to a few finalists. The finalists will be displayed and voted on by the public the night of the Street Festival. The voting round is from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. and the winners and cash prizes will be announced approximately around 8:00 p.m.

A Big Thank You to the Looking for Lincoln Heritage Coalition for providing the funds to bring the Abraham Lincoln actor, Randy Duncan, to this year’s Street Festival. Randy will be saying a few words at the opening ceremony touching upon Lincoln’s life as circuit rider and the influence the small communities had on him during his circuit riding days.

There will be another presentation at 6:30 p.m. in the gazebo where Mr. Duncan will be answering any questions that guests may have about Lincoln’s experiences throughout his life. He will also be presenting what it was like for children to grow up in those years.
