Good turnout for Walleye Festival

The 2013 annual Findlay Walleye Festival was held this past weekend. People from all over Shelby County came to Findlay to eat some delicious walleye sandwiches made by Findlay’s own volunteers.

The festival started Friday at 4 p.m., with the opening of the walleye tent in front of the firehouse in downtown Findlay.

Some of the fun things to check out were the wood carvings done with chainsaws. Some of the popular wood carvings were the standup bears. Other things included different vendors with food and tents where people sold different jewelry and clothes to the public.

The entertainment started with a prayer on the main stage by the group Simply Faith which then followed with a performance of their own southern gospel music.

AFC ministries and Gregory T. Ridenhour followed after with their own version of southern gospel music.

Sadie Zimmerman had her own solo performance as the night went on and Battle Creek Band was the last act of the night on the main stage.

Big Daddy Jasper performed for four hours in the beer tent to end the night.

Saturday started bright and early with the Community Center Pancake Breakfast which started at 6 a.m.

The annual parade was after at 10 a.m, and went all through the town of Findlay.

The children got to have some fun with tractor pulls and there was also a 3 on 3 basketball tournament at Findlay Park.

The main stage was once again full of different acts from different people from around the area.

The Forrest Parker Band was the first act that performed and they performed for most of the afternoon.

In the evening Almost Country Band got on stage and performed for three hours for the public at the festival.

The ending acts took place on the main stage and in the beer tent. Misdemeanor Band performed from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. on the main stage while Feuding Hillbillies performed their act in the beer tent to end the night at 12 a.m.

Sunday was the last day of the festival with Slant 6. The band performed in the beer tent which was open from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.

The Village Board said that the festival would not have happened without the volunteers and the whole community’s efforts to make sure the festival was able to go on.
