ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

Residents of Lone Tree are looking forward to this year’s fall festival, which will be a weekend packed full of fun activities, including an auction, an eating contest and live entertainment.

Lone Tree’s fall festival is a family-friendly event that has been around for 70 years, and this year it will take place on Aug. 24 and 25.

“The fall festival is important because it is a good way to get the whole community together in one place,” said Samantha Griffitts of Lone Tree’s Farmers and Merchants Savings Bank.

On Friday, the main event will be the Bids for Baskets Auction, sponsored by the Lone Tree Chamber of Commerce. The auction will take place at 7:30 p.m., and all proceeds will go toward chamber sponsored projects.

In the past, the chamber has completed refurbishing the Lone Tree neon sign, sponsored the high school student volunteer award and bought new chairs for the Lone Tree community building.

The record number of baskets auctioned off is 51, but this year they are hoping for more basket donations to exceed that number. If anyone would like to donate a basket, the chamber asks for people to bring the baskets to Farmers and Merchants Bank by 4 p.m., Aug. 23.

Other events taking place on Friday is the Big Wheels race, carnival rides and entertainment from Cedar County Cobras.

On Saturday, people are invited to partake in the 5K fun run. Other events Saturday are the fall festival parade at 11 a.m., volleyball tournament, car show, vendor fair, egg toss and a buffalo wing eating contest. Saturday’s music will be provided by Anthony Entertainment.
