[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 2020.

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.
