The 2018 Mayfest was very NICE. It was a one day event featuring food fenders, kids bounce houses and crafters. The rain stopped long enough for the parade and most of the events to continue. Other events included a 5k and firemans breakfast. Check out...More

A great small town celebration with lots of entertainment, food (local restaurants and street vendors) and stuff for sale. Really well put together.

Beautiful weekend for this little festival in 2012. Saturday is the big day, by Sunday fewer vendors set up. In past years felt craft quality higher,possibly was better on Saturday. Some games for kids, a few pricy food trucks. Worth attending.

I'm sorry, I'm sure people worked very hard for this event but there is nothing unique about it. It seems to be more of a community event vs anything for tourists.
