All-day festival set for tomorrow
Placeholder Image

Great food, lively entertainment, an Elvis impersonator, and even professional wrestling are on the schedule tomorrow at the fairgrounds as the Standard holds its second Back to the ’60s Bash.
If that’s not enough, there’s also the chance to win $500 in cash that will be given away.
“We had right around 2,000 people in attendance last year and everybody seemed to be having a good time,” said Standard publisher Patricia Zechman. “So we decided to do it again this year as a way to have some summer fun and to also honor our veterans.”
World War II and Korean War veterans will be honored during an opening ceremony that starts at 10 a.m. Any veteran of those wars who wishes to be recognized is encouraged to attend. If you haven’t already submitted your name, you can do so before the ceremony.
Gates open at 9:30 a.m. for general admission. Vehicles for the car show can arrive as early as 8:30 a.m.
Tickets can be purchased at the Standard for $2 today or $3 at the gate. Children 12-and-under are admitted free. The Big Woman Band is scheduled to perform at 4 p.m. with Pink Cadillac to follow at 5:30 p.m.
There will be several inflatables for the kids that can be used at no charge.
