Every August, Lone Jack gears up for a battle! Actually, it is the 1862 Lone Jack Civil War Battle Commemoration. People come from everywhere to enjoy the festivities. Some of the activities this year include a Boy Scout pancake breakfast, a parade, craft booths, a PTA carnival, and concessions with all kinds of good food. There will be dancers, Gospel music, and several other activities. Join us for the fun on August 20th from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. If you are a history buff (and even if you're not), you will certainly enjoy the Commemoration!
Fall is coming up on us quick. And with fall comes a whole host of parades and festivals in and around Kansas City! The following are just some of the parades/festivals coming up (and ones in which MCPL will be participating):
The parade will start everything off on Saturday morning. Throughout the weekend, there will be several different musical performances as well as other live entertainment. There will be a children’s area and a petting zoo to keep the kids entertained. There will also be several different vendors selling food, crafts, etc.
Fall is almost upon us. As everyone in Weston knows, the first Saturday in October is Applefest! There will be parades, apple cider, apple butter making, and hay baling. Shops downtown are decorated for the season, and will be busy. I hope everyone comes out to see the parade because the Book Cart Drill Team will show off their Book cart moves.
