Mount Pulaski Mayor Matt Bobell delivered a fantastic opening speech on Friday, September 13, 2019 to kick off the 2019 Mount Pulaski Fall Festival. The square was filled with food vendors, craft vendors and Inflatable FUN! The Kiddie Pageant took place on the steps of the courthouse this year and was a perfect historical setting for the next generation of “Hilltoppers” to make history. The Hilltop Catering & Hilltop Club Grilled Chicken Dinner was a huge success under the big tent on the square. Kids of all ages had fun participating in the Lip Sync Battle. The evening wrapped up with the band Brandy Kristin and the Revival headlining the beer tent. The beautiful cool evening brought a lot people to the square and many were overheard saying, “This is one of the nicest festivals we’ve seen in years.”

The festival continues today with a Soap Box Derby, Kiddie Tractor Pull, Antique Tractor Show and Chili Cook-off and Bake-Off just to name a few of the highlights. The parade is at 4 p.m. today and runs south to north on Washington Street. At 5:30 p.m. a local band, “Ralphie and the Boys” takes the stage. Walker Allen is the lead singer of the band that will be making its Fall Festival debut. A pork chop dinner will be in the big tent tonight at 4:30 p.m. This dinner is a fundraiser for the MPHS students trip to Washington D.C. Dueling Pianos take the main stage at 7:00 p.m. The Outland Band is the headlining act in the beer tent as the festival wraps up tonight.
