A great weekend

young. It all happens on the beautiful uptown square in Mount
Pulaski, beginning with a delicious mostaccioli dinner under the big
tent, served by the Community Pride Committee, from 5 to 8 p.m. Also
under the big tent will be music and wine from 5 to 9 p.m. Music
will be provided by the local Vinegar Hill Brass and by the Logan
County Bluegrass Band.
Saturday morning begins with
two great sidewalk breakfasts, one at the VFW Hall and the other at
the Pulaski House Restaurant, from 6 to 10 a.m. Craft vendors and
shops will be open all day. There will be continuous music from noon
until 11 p.m. with lots of bluegrass. Bands and other performers are
High Cotton, Long Creek, Dean Watson and High Lonesome, Uptown
String Band, Cambric Garden, Randy Erwin, the Irish Step Dancers and
the Heartland Cloggers. A delicious pork chop dinner under the big
tent will be served by the Catholic church, beginning at 5 p.m. Don
Smith and his dance band orchestra will take over at 8 p.m. Bring
your dancing shoes.
On Sunday, Mount Pulaski brings
back the old times with a traditional ice cream social, featuring
Don Maxheimer's homemade ice cream-making machine, along with music
provided by the Mount Pulaski Community Band on the courthouse lawn.
Baked goods will be provided by the Methodist church. Special
Father's Day prizes will be handed out.
