There will be a new group in charge of this year’s Pekin Marigold Festival’s Friday night downtown event. Liz Curtin-Rogers will coordinate this family event in association with her non-profit organization, Pekin Performing Arts Center.
Friday Family Fun Fest will be held Friday, September 9 from 5pm-9pm in downtown Pekin. This event will bring back an old crowd favorite as well as provide some new offerings.
The Lip Sync Contest is back! This event is open to individuals and groups and will have child and adult categories. The entry fee is $20, and there will be cash prizes. An entry form can be obtained by emailing email@example.com. You can also pick up forms at the Pekin Chamber office located at 402 Court St. Entertainment between categories will be provided by Classical Dance Academy.
There will also be many food vendors. Any food vendors, for profit or non-profit, wanting to participate can email firstname.lastname@example.org for a food vendor form.
There will also be a vendor marketplace this year. This will be open to crafters, artists, and direct sales vendors. Anyone wanting a vendor form can email email@example.com.
New this year, the Kid’s Fun Zone will have inflatables, games, and fun activities for the whole family.
Please join us downtown on Pekin Marigold Friday night for this long-standing Pekin tradition.
