Giveaways, festivals planned for remainder of summer

The summer months are heating up with festivals and giveaways. Organizations throughout Madison County are planning car shows, festivals and school giveaways for July and August. Here's a look at what's ahead:

Lapel Village Fair

Lapel locals are normally picked to be the grand marshal of the annual Lapel Village Fair parade, but that’s changing this year.

Author and WISH-TV reporter Dick Wolfsie will be the grand marshal at Saturday’s parade, which begins at 3:30 p.m. on Main Street.

Organizer Nancy Hinkle said Wolfsie will also have a book signing an hour before and an hour after the parade at Willow, 702 Main St.

Hinkle said this year’s Village Fair, which runs Friday through Sunday, will have the usual features, including entertainment and a lot of food. A free showing of “The Lego Movie” will begin at dusk at the parking lot on 7th and Main streets.

Hinkle said the Village Fair helps attract business to local shops.

“It brings a lot of people here,” she said. "Plus it brings people back home. We have a lot of class reunions and a lot of people plan their vacation around that weekend.”

Kiwanis Kar Show

The Pendleton Kiwanis is having its third annual Kar Show Saturday at Falls Park.

Lead Chair Todd Hare said the show is in memory of Neal Shull, a Kiwanis member who was shot and killed in the summer of 2012. Hare said Shull started the show when he was a member and it was important to him.

“Probably Kiwanis was his biggest passion…” Hare said. “This is kind of his car show. I sort of took it over to keep it alive for him and make it what he hopefully would have wanted to be.”

Registration is 7 to 10 a.m. Saturday. It costs $15 and judging starts at 11 a.m., with awards presented at 3 p.m.

    Cathy Hensley’s never been much of a drinker. It wasn’t something that interested her very much, so it seemed unfathomable that she would ever run a winery. But after her son Eric offered her and her husband, Duke, some wine he made, it changed things.
