Farm City Day 2018 Radio Promotion
Farm City Day 2018 was a great event. This day-long event featured both urban and rural displays, antique and modern farm equipment, tools, live music, square dancing, clogging, arts and crafts, children’s activities, old-timey games, wagon rides, displays, demonstrations, tractor pulls, hands-on activities, and plenty of food. Animal lovers enjoyed the petting zoo and a fishing pond. The old-timey games included an egg toss, sack race, and corn shucking. The Park came
alive with the sights and sounds of live regional bands, dancers and singers performing throughout the day.
Farm City Day was started in 1955 by the Cooperative Extension Service and Kiwanis International. The Festival highlights the dependency of farm people and city people on each other for products and services essential to modern living. The Farm City program was designed to encourage the exchange of ideas and development of shared activities creating a feeling of mutual understanding and goodwill. In 1986 Farm City Day was moved to Jackson Park.
Whether you’re city folks or country folks, Farm City Day will fill your day with fun for the whole family.
