“Despite the threat of rain, people were getting their hoedown on in an array of amazing costumes,” said school administrator Heather Perkull.

Perkull said the event included a cake walk, fish pond, candy store, wheelbarrow races, jellybean count, photo booth and mystery jars.

“There was something for everyone,” she said. “Good food, fantastic entertainment and a growing musical community.”

The 2020 country fair is already scheduled to take place, Perkull added, on Friday, June 5.
