Rural Festival to be held on Nov. 7 in Buena Vista

The Beautiful View Garden Club and the Buena Vista Lions Club are making plans for the annual Rural America Festival which is scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 7. This annual festival has been sponsored by these local organizations for over 35 years.

All festival activities will be located on the Marion County Courthouse square. The parade begins at 10 a.m. and festival activities will continue throughout the day. The hours for the festival are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Admission is free.

Proceeds from the booth rentals are used in the in the community for beautification projects and to help maintain the Community Center building. Proceeds from the barbecue lunch are used to support the Lion’s Club projects for glasses for needy children in Marion County. This barbecue pork lunch is always popular and the men of the Lion’s Club enjoy preparing this delicious lunch. The members of the Beautiful View Garden Club will be selling soft drinks and they will also have a booth selling decorative glass block lights.

Judy Williams is chairman for festival entries. Contact her at Buena Vista Floral Shop or 649-7800. Donna Scott has planned the parade for several years and she can be contacted at 649-7349. This year cash prizes will be awarded to the three best decorated floats/decorated vehicles.

All residents of Marion County and friends from neighboring counties are invited to attend this family fun day. The larger the number of participants in the parade and the greater the variety of vendors and activities equals more fun for everyone.
