Fun in Frankton

Festival runs September 20-22

(Continued)

On Saturday, it’s a day filled with hot air balloon activities, car show, tractor pull, muzzle loading rifle match, mud wrestling and more. There’s even a cross-cut saw challenge and a pedal tractor pull.

At 10 a.m., pick your spot for the big festival parade. This year, the parade honors Chuck Covell and the Means family. At 5 p.m., there’s a parade of a whole other kind, when pets get to strut their stuff. The pet parade is in partnership with the Madison County Humane Society.

In the evening, look for more bingo, another pingpong drop, Jay’s magic show, the spectacular balloon night glow and stage entertainment.

Fireworks top off the evening at dusk. Alexander said it will be the largest the festival has seen.

There’s still more fun on Sunday, with early morning hot air balloon action, followed in the afternoon with children’s games, corn hole tourney and a pie-eating contest. The festival wraps up with a “big surprise” at 3 p.m. Alexander says visitors will just have to show up to find out.

The theme for this year’s event is “When people come together for old-time sake.” Alexander noted, “We just really try to create a family-focused event. … We do try to celebrate the heritage of Frankton.”

We yearn for peace, a feeling of freedom from commotion and antagonism, of harmony in our relationships, of lack of strife or dissension. What would we do to have peace in our lives?
