Highway 259 North will be closed on Sunday, October 14 between 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. for the Second Saturday event, a state-wide affair with the goal of getting people moving and encouraging physical activity. The event will be held at the fairgrounds and will include games and a grand prize giveaway of a new set of cornhole boards.
The event is free to the public.
Also at the fairgrounds on Sunday afternoon will be the Muscle Walk from 3 p.m. until 5 p.m. This DECA Club-sponsored event hopes to bring awareness for Muscular Dystrophy.
Anyone looking for more information on the events is welcome to call 259-3492.
