Plans are being finalized for the Weeping Water Fall Festival to be held on Saturday, September 28th.  A day of fun, food and music, sponsored by the Weeping Water Chamber of Commerce.

Registration forms for the Scavenger Hunt may be picked up at City Hall during the week of September 23-28.  Completed forms must be turned in at the Auditorium (Gibson Hall) by 4pm on September 28.  A random drawing will be held for two $50 Chamber Bucks Certificates.  Must be 16 or older to participate.  One entry per person.  Need not be present to win.

Residents, businesses and organizations are encouraged to use their imagination and create a unique scarecrow.  All entries should be ready for registration at City Hall by September 23 and will be displayed during the week of the 23-28.  The public is welcome to vote for their favorite scarecrow at City Hall during the week of the 23-27 or vote at the Auditorium on September 28 during the craft show between 9am and 4pm.  Prize awards will be attached to the winning scarecrows shortly after the voting ends and cash awards of $50 for 1st place, $25 for 2nd place and $10 for 3rd place will be forwarded to the winners within the following week.  Additional information regarding the Scarecrow Contest can be obtained by contacting Kay Gerdes and/or Linda Fleming at 402-267-5152.
