MANITO POPCORN FESTIVAL
WELCOME TO THE NEW MANITO POPCORN FESTIVAL
The Popcorn Festival Committee is making changes in this years celebration.
We will remain a three day celebration. The main difference from previous years is the extent of the committee's involvement. We will no longer spend so much hard time filling time slots in the schedule. The empty slots will be published. If there are no volunteers to fill the slots, they will remain empty
Sunday will become "Family Day", a time for families to spend quality time enjoying all the delicious foods from our many outstanding vendors.
The Forman Fire Department will return with the Chicken BBQ on Saturday. We are glad to see them back with the chickens. Two other groups have stepped forward to do the corn dogs this year Another change will occur with the Sunday meal. Members of the Catholic Church will be celebrating their beautiful new church that weekend. The Manito Historical Society will serve Pork Chops on Saturday after the chicken bbq beginning at 4:00 p.m.
Again this year we will provide the petting zoo and the bounce houses free of charge.
The Popcorn Festival Committee has booked some very quality entertainment for Saturday evening after the Lip Sync. We have signed a contract with Project Two Music from Chicago. They will perform a 90 minute show of great music for all ages. You can hear them at www.projecttwomusic.com
We are also asking one of the area churches to host the Sunday Morning "Church In The Park". Please contact Lee Lacey if your Church would be interested.
Other changes will be made as the celebration gets closer
Please keep checking back here often. Changes will be made frequently.
Of course it takes money to provide all the entertainment for the Popcorn Festival. We are still looking for sponsors for some of our events and the Festival Friends is on going. Please consider helping the committee by making your donation.
