It is the most wonderful time of the year…Marengo Settler’s Days October 5th-8th. The theme this year celebrates the Farm Life, and all that it means: hardworking farmers, beautiful farmland and the heritage in our community of friends and family. All your favorite events from the Prince and Princess Contest, to Bingo at the Firehouse, Petting Zoo, Pet Parade and the Skinner’s Carnival are ready to go (Friday night wristbands are on sale now). A few new events, Methodist Church will host a flea market and a family kickball fundraiser (advance registration required) for Zion’s Comfort Dog Ministry will both be held Saturday. Still have energy, well don’t miss the party on Mainstreet Saturday night. Featured bands are Jim & Justin, Pirate Radio and 7th Heaven. Last, but not least, the biggest and best parade in the county steps off at 2:00pm which includes area marching bands that will go on to compete in the Band Field Show Competition 4:00 at MCHS. Honored Grand Marshalls of the parade will be Harold and Laura Heinberg, life-long Marengo residents, who have not only built a beautiful farm life, but have contributed to the community in many ways. Hope everyone has a wonderful time this year, visiting new attractions and your good old favorites. For more information, sign up or view the schedule of events visit www.settlersdays.com.
