We’ve got a couple food vendors that will be up there as well. There’s a pie contest: we have a kids’ pedal pull contest…and then some live music, the Marshall County Hangmen will perform at 5:30 And then the Vanguard Cadets will perform at 7:30. They are are a drum corps out of Santa Clara, CA that will be doing a quick performance right before the City Band concert at 8.” Beef burgers from the Mahaska County Cattleman’s Assc. and sweet corn will be available fro 4-9 tonight.
