Clowns, inflatables, train rides to be featured at weekend event

GLASGOW — The Park City Community Festival and Antique Tractor and Machinery Show, which will be Friday and Saturday at Bell’s Tavern Heritage Park, will offer more for children than in the past, according to event organizers.

For instance, clowns will be on hand to entertain festivalgoers.

“We are going to be selling cotton candy. The clowns will be giving away pinwheels,” said Jo Higginbotham, a member of the festival committee.

The festival will also feature bouncy houses for children and a train ride made from barrels by Glen Wilson, she said.

There will also be a cornhole tournament, a karaoke contest, arts and crafts booths, a pedal pull and a fireworks display beginning at dark Saturday.

Two gospel groups will perform Friday night – at 6:30 p.m. will be the Highland Quartet, followed by Believers of the Cross at 7:45 p.m.

The festival kicks off Saturday with a breakfast by the Park City Lions Club at the clubhouse at 6:30 a.m.

Registration for the antique tractor and machinery show begins at 7 a.m., and a parade featuring the tractors will start at 10 a.m.

A silent auction begins at 9:30 a.m., with the last bids being taken at 5:45 p.m.

At 11 a.m., the Highland United Methodist Church youth will sell bean soup and cornbread at the Park City Lions Club’s clubhouse as a fundraiser.

 Entertainment on Saturday will include performances by Road Kill at 1 p.m., the karaoke contest from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m., square dancers at 5 p.m. and Double or Nothin at 6:30 p.m., which will perform patriotic music before the fireworks.

“We’re getting excited,” Higginbotham said. “We’re anxious to see the kids enjoy the festival as a whole.”
