This family-friendly, fall event features a petting zoo, giant inflatables, rock climbing, hay rides and more! Children are welcome to come in costume and may even find a treat! The Flagg Rochelle Library will host pumpkin decorating at the event and City Hall hosts a Pumpkin Decorating Contest for school ages through adult beginning October 11th.
The second annual Straw Sculpting Competition will be held Downtown throughout the festival and voting happens at City Hall and the winner will be announced during Hay Day! We’ll have plenty of good food available with the Rochelle Fire Department serving their festival-famous pork chop sandwiches and Hicks BBQ. Musical entertainment will be provided by bluegrass band The Templetons – a family of ten playing old time favorites.
Businesses, organizations and crafty individuals are invited to join in the fun and create a straw or hay sculpture and enter the competition.
