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
