There is a special melodrama that will be preformed this year that was written specifically for this event. Make sure to schedule time to see “Mary Goes for the Gold” or “Pick My Flowers Please” a Mantorville exclusive play.
One of the things I look forward to with many of our celebrations is the opportunity to add to the culture and identity of Mantorville. One of the more identifiable trademarks of a Mantorville celebration is the many number of us that choose to dawn “period attire” and dress the part. Please feel free to join us in promoting Mantorville with your interpretation of “period attire” from the Victorian / frontier town era.
Friday Events will include: a flower show, spaghetti supper, Field of Flags presentation and a all new melodrama. The vendors will setup Thursday and will be open for business on Friday evening.
Saturday will be a full day of events indeed. With something scheduled almost every hour Saturday will be a great day to spend in Mantorville. Make sure to stick around until after 8:30 to see a truly amazing fireworks display.
While Sunday is the last day of the celebration we still have over 14 events scheduled for the day including the Grande Parade at 1:30pm.
This year in particular we will have events for everyone. From the Fire and Rescue dance to the Kiddie Parade. Other attractions include a fishing contest, quilt show, antiques, bingo, truck pull in Kasson, softball, car show and a kids & pet parade.
For a complete list of times and events check out the Marigold Days web page at MarigoldDays.com or find more information on the event’s face book page. I will also have a copy of the event times on my blog. Make sure to print out the schedule or bring your mobile device because you are not going to want to miss out on any of our great events this year.
Yours in service,
Mayor - City of Mantorville
