Food, Fun, and Friends at the County Seat Market Fair this Friday 4:00-7:00

Don't forget to checkout this week's County Seat Market Fair this Friday. The Market Fair is a new event series that offers local and surrounding communities an opportunity to come together to offer homegrown, homemade and a variety of items from local vendors.

You can find us in Montezuma at the corner of 2nd & Main. One block east of US Highway 63, just south of Main Street (Just north of Peoples Bank). Vendors include coffee, mints, salsa, produce, plants, unique items, and more.

Even if you don't find vendor offerings to your liking, there are more reasons to come to the Market Fair. The entertainment this week is "Karaoke by Scott Farrington. The entertainment is free thanks to our sponsors. Future acts scheduled included Drum & Strum, Too Many Strings Band, Breaking Adam, and King of Clubs. So there are different genres for different tastes in music. But go ahead and sample them all.

The meal vendor this week is the Montezuma Study Group. They will be serving up grilled items. The Montezuma Women's Study Club meets monthly with programs to explore opportunities and personal experiences found in the community. Bea Hensel is the current president and anyone interested in joining should contact her. The group sponsors two or three scholarships for Montezuma High School seniors. They also give donations to the Montezuma Food Pantry as well as other community projects that arise.

Active community member, Janet McKee says, “A great location for a summer evening meal, local vendors, and music. Bring your lawn chair, relax and stay a while, visit, and enjoy.”

For anyone that might say that there is nothing to do in town, now's you chance. The Market Fair is scheduled for the first and third (and fifth) Friday of June, July, and August from 4:00-7:00 PM. The entertainment act is different each time. The meal vendors are a variety as well. Whether you can make it this week or not, make this part of you Let Celebration Ring weekend on July 5th, as well as the rest of the summer.

So tell and bring your family and friends and enjoy a late afternoon/early evening of fun, food and face- to-face socialization. Bring your lawn chairs as well as playing cards, checkers, chess, backgammon, or just yourself. This is a great way to kick-off the weekend.
