Fun in Fulton

Talent show and more return at 14th annual Fulton Fun Days Festival

Have you ever wanted to catapult a water balloon at a friend? This weekend you can.

Water wars will be one of many activities offered this weekend at the 14th annual Fulton Fun Days Festival.

The festival first began in the mid-70s, but it only lasted three years. But in 2000, the Fulton Liberty Lions Club revived the festival.

“A community that works together, grows together.” That’s the theme organizers have adopted for the festivities, paying homage to work completed by the Fulton Improvement Committee. Its work has included a new Community Center, said Linda Wade, who has spearheaded the festival committee since it began during Fulton’s centennial year.

Friday night festivities will include The Taste of Fulton, a local restaurant sampler; Caston’s baseball and football coaches will bring a summer food menu; and there will be mushball, euchre, youth 3-on-3 basketball and corn hole tournaments. There will also be a gospel concert with a quartet, A Touch of Sunday.

“I’m looking forward to a greater number of people experiencing the event and sharing in the festivities,” Wade said.

Lions Club members were in the merchants building at the Cass County 4-H Fair this year and received a lot of requests on events, Wade said.

Several hundred people visit the festival annually, and Wade hopes they pull in 500 or 600 people this year.

Admission is free, but the water wars event along with the food will have a fee. TG Enterprises and Red Barn elephant ears will serve food, on top of the fundraiser meals Friday and Saturday at the pavilion in the park. The meal the first night will raise money for the baseball and football teams and the meal Saturday will be a Fulton Improvement Committee fundraiser.

A member of the planning committee and Fulton Liberty Lions Club, Melody Dalton, has been helping with the festival for six years. For Dalton, who has lived in the community for 33 years, serving the community is important.
