[September 02, 2014]
Delavan Fall Festival this past Labor Day Weekend drew friends,
families and visitors together for a great time of fun and food.
Most activities were centered at the town's popular Lake Park.
While the ground was a bit soft from recent heavy rains, straw
strewn paths allowed crowds to access to all parts of the park, and
events were well attended.
The weekend that began on Friday evening offered specific events
targeted to appeal to a wide range of ages and an array of
interests. From outdoor family night movies, to carnival and kid
games, food and craft vendors, special dinners and ice cream social,
live music, teen dances, BINGO, a community church service, a 10-K
fun run -- there was something for everyone.
On Sunday afternoon, the hot attraction was the Truck and Tractor
Pull. All ages could be found at or near to the action that took
place between 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. on the far north side of the park.
Babies to elders, even the family dog could be found gathered in the
blend of family, friend and social groups. In the pickup truck
filled parking area, young adults tailgated as fledgling youngsters
watched them from the fringes.

A couple of blocks of the track's hillside was packed with
families watching as contest after contest, truck and tractor
drivers from far and wide tried their luck getting the most
distance on the mud track.
The afternoon was entertaining no matter which way you looked
and a great time to forge or renew friendships.
