[JUNE 18, 2004]  A great weekend festival opens today with something for everyone, young and not so 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.
