To the editor:

A huge thank you to all who made the Elkhart Fall Festival a sparkling success. The success comes from the dedication of the people of this wonderful town and from the desire of the merchants to help Elkhart continue to grow.

The fall festival was held Sept. 22 and included vendors from all over the Lincolnland area, Kathy and Bill Cosby's Simplicity open house, the music of Jim Landers, the local religious youth groups of the Catholic and Christian churches, the local Brownies organization, Mr. Maxheimer's homemade ice cream, antique tractors, vintage cars, Indian artifacts, library fun and games, Illinois State Police Heritage Foundation vintage car, the Farmer's Market, and finally, to finish off the day, Mr. Jim Ireland from Lincoln had three of the local hot-air balloonists take off from town.

The local businesses commented on increased sales and exposure.

A special thank you to Mayor Anderson and Mrs. Anderson for putting up the barricades on Main Street. Another special thank you to St. Patrick's Catholic Church for taking the garbage for the day. 

With your continued help we will continue to expand on these kinds of events to help central Illinois get to know Elkhart much better and be known for its great people, places, atmosphere and attitude.

Elkhart Festival Association
