Sunflower festival cancelled, July 9, 2020

It is with a heavy heart that we announce that we feel we must cancel the Sunflower Festival. The increase in the number of Coronavirus cases makes us afraid that we would be creating an unsafe environment for all the great folks that come out and make the festival fun. We will continue to post…

They are growing! June 27, 2020
