Assumption Fest started Thursday night in City Park even though heavy rains soaked the area. Just as the Queen pageant was getting ready to start rain drove the festivities into the fire house. Due to quick response from the festival committee the Little Miss, Junior Miss and Miss Assumption was moved into the dry building. Country performer Justin VanCleve was scheduled to perform on the main stage after the Queen pageant. However, due to the rain he will perform Friday night. Angela Marsters of the Assumption Fest committee told regional radio news one of the great things about small towns is everyone’s willingness to pitch in to make the event come together despite the inclement weather.
Assumption Fest will continue thru Saturday with live entertainment, fireworks and the grand parade on Saturday morning.
