Festival kicks off Wednesday
If it’s mid summer in Newaygo County there are two things you can count on.
Temperatures rising into the numbers most of us craved in mid winter...
And the National Baby Food Festival.
The festival kicks into high gear Wednesday (aka Kids Day) and activities will be happening all over the city right through Saturday before wrapping things up with the annual Worship in the Park held Sunday at 6pm.
The Carnival Midway opens for business Wednesday with an all-you-can-ride special (until 5pm) for $20, there will be turtle races and frog jumping and the Kids Parade at 5:45pm. It's also Kids Expo Day from 11am-2pm with a boatload of giveaways as well as info on services available for families.
Thursday bibliophiles will have their moment at the FADL book sale, a couple hours of fitness will take place at the community stage beginning at 12:30pn and in the evening Hypnotist Rick Wheeler performs on the Vets Park stage at 8pm.
Friday’s highlights include the hula hoop contest and the baby food eating contest (12 and under please. We know how much you adults love those strained peaches). It's also the evening when the NBFF Queen is crowned and Current Country will kick out some tunes at Vets Park beginning at 7pm.
Saturday is the parade and if there is anything Fremont does to perfection it’s a parade. Grab your spot early because at 10:30am it is time for the marching to begin.
Saturday night Looking Back, a Bob Seger tribute band, will deliver on that Old Time Rock & Roll and Roll Me Away with some Night Moves until they Turn The Page on another day at NBFF.
Seriously, there are a slew of fun things to do this week, more than we can fit into an article so go to the Fremont Area C of C site below or pick up a schedule at their office at 7 E Main in downtown Fremont.
