Fall Festival was set for Sep. 7, but the weather had other plans.
Due to the cold and wet weather, the music and the bouncy houses for Fall Festival were cancelled, as well as most of the vendors, although three vendors showed up and two remained set up for several hours.
The Baker Chamber of Commerce still had plans to hold their duck race, but a downpour in the afternoon caused them to have to reschedule that event. The duck race will now be held on Saturday, Sept. 14, with the Son’s of the American Legion rib cookoff.
Products of the Prairie vendors were located inside the vendor building at the Fallon County Fairgrounds so the weather didn’t put a damper on their event.
The Baker Lions Club held their dinner and barn dance in the Fairgrounds livestock barn that evening. Although they didn’t have as big of a crowd as last year, those who did show up enjoyed their evening dancing, laughing and eating.
