Celebrating 30 years has occurred every year in Dow, for the Olden Days festival except for last year because of the pandemic.
However committee organizers did not let COVID stop them this year and the Annual Olden Days Festival went on as planned on Saturday, Aug 28-Sunday, Aug 29.
The Tri-County Antique Club organizers were excited about this year’s turnout.
The tractor pulls were back this year, Sinclair Foods had gift certificates and festival goers had a chance to win the gift cards in the local raffle. The festival had a Melaleuca Gift Basket, handmade pottery, and Farm & Home gift cards were also available for the raffle drawings. The winning drawing was held at 3 p.m. Sunday.
Carol Parcell said, “People enjoy and love the Olden Days food each time , the entertainment and tractor pulls are a big hit too,” Parcell said. “Old-fashioned ham and beans and pork chops are two food favorites.”
There was a Kid’s Land available which was very crowded and full of activities for kids of all ages. “Fireproof” played from 9:30 a.m. to noon on Sunday and the “Gibson Girls” played from 1 to 4 p.m.
The event was enjoyed by families and kids and people. According to organizers,
“The festival was a big deal because it was the 30th anniversary of Olden Days.”
