Heritage Days Entertainment Set "Three Decades Preserving Heritage"
by Arlene Krueger
The Heritage Foundation of the East Grand Forks Area, Inc. began holding Heritage Days 30 years ago this year. We celebrate this event on Saturday and Sunday August 20th and 21st.
Each year we have many of the familiar activities which help to remind us of our heritage and community traditions These include the General store with penny candy, sarsaparilla, artifacts, steam threshing, log sawing, shingle and broom making, woodcarving, weaving, spinning and the miniature railroad exhibition, tractor pulling, along with a petting zoo and viewing of the Sherlock House, log cabin, school house, blacksmithing and the Granville Church.
Saturday we begin with the Heritage Breakfast followed by the parade. There are children's games including the haystack scramble and peddle tractor pull.
Sunday is the Ecumenical Worship service at 10:30 followed by a traditional family Sunday Dinner
11:30 AM -1:00 PM. The tractor pull starts at 1:00 - 5:00 PM. The musical band stand entertainment each
day from 1:00 -5 PM is always a crowd pleaser.
There will again be a Big Bob's Buffalo Burger stand, Old time Ice Cream palo, Granville Church basement concessions and food vendors.
This year we have planned another wonderful variety of entertainment for you on the bandstand and in the Hagen building each day. We are always interested in promoting our young artists and this year is no exception. Saturday August 20, Teddy Edwards "N.D. Button Box Boy" age 14 from Butte, North Dakota will be featured on his accordion. Among his selections will be schottisches, waltzes, Norwegian and German Polkas along with some country and gospel selections.
The Barbershop Quartet "Choices" from Oshkosh, Wisconsin will perform also on Saturday. They are Land O lakes Lake Division winners. Members are Joel Krueger, Smyte Smithlin, Collin Stevenson and Patrick Doehem. Joel is the son of Arlene and Leon Krueger.
Sunday August 21st "the Charley Family" from Minot, North Dakota will be featured. A musical family of 8 ( 6 children ages 11-16) will entertain us with fiddles, mandolins, Irish Drums, and vocal harmony with blue-grass and gospel music.
Locally we have contacted the newly organized blue grass band in Grand forks called "Prairie Grass" and the "Second Wind Band" a senior citizens band perform along with the Greater Grand Forks City Band. Several other groups are tentative and will be advertised in the local media.
All of these activities are free to enjoy with the purchase of a Heritage Days Button for $7.00 at the gate for a fun filled 2 day weekend event. There is also no charge for parking. Bring your friends and family to enjoy this community celebration of the past August 20-21 2005
Volunteers are always needed!! Who knows maybe you!! really enjoy it.
