[May 17, 2019]
Mount Pulaski kicked off their 2nd
Friday on the Square event on Friday, May 10, 2019. The town square
was filled with people from 5 p.m. until 10 p.m. enjoying live
music, craft vendors, food, drinks and kids activities.
Thanks in part to the wonderful
evening weather, the first event of the year was a success.
While there were many things to
interest all ages on the square, a highlight was the introduction of
the Market on the Hill, which is a Mount Pulaski Community Owned
Grocery and Meat Market coming in early 2020. The town has been
without a local grocery store for a few years now and folks are
really in need of buying local fresh produce and meat.
Shaun Tyson of Mount Pulaski is just
one of the local residents involved with the Market on the Hill.
Tyson was giving out free vegetables Friday night, along with
assistance from Kaden Mott, and by all accounts everything they
handed out was delicious. Market on the Hill will be located on the
town square at 123 S. Lafayette St. when open for business in early
[to top of second column]
The Oscar Mayer Wienermobile
also made a surprise appearance at the event. The Wienermobile
is currently being driven by Mount Pulaski's own Cady Lowery.
Following a birthday party at Pizza Man, Lowery gave rides to
kids uptown on the square.
Friday on the Square will take place May thru September, leading
up to the town's 2019 Fall Festival. Please mark the following
dates on your calendar:
