This summer the town square welcomes a new gathering: Summerfest. The fluffy blueberry pancakes of yesteryear’s Blueberry Festivals returned, along with local music, vendors, and barbecue.
Special attention was paid to downtown attractions including the historic jail and courthouse, and the Barn Lot Theater.
“The Edmonton Metcalfe County Chamber of Commerce was extremely pleased with the 1st Summerfest. In spite of the intense heat, there was a great number of people in attendance,” said Gaye Shaw of the chamber.
Vendors reported sales were good.
“The Barn Lot Theater, Metcalfe County Public Library, and the Metcalfe County Historical Society greatly added to the event and reported good attendance at their venues. The music by our own Hornets’ Nest Pickers and Kentucky Just Us was just awesome. Many made comments that the chamber needs to continue with a Summerfest each year. I’ve heard no complaints about anything thus far and that is unusual and a very good thing!”
