Celina (Grand) Lake Festival Weekend


Celina Lake Festival July 22-24, 2011...

The Car Show, here from a couple years ago featuring my buddy Whitey Klosterman and one(he has several) of his Classic Buick vehicles, and another "Woody" are always among my favorite parts.  The Fireworks and Grand Parade are the highlights of the weekend, and the Sidewalk Sales are the mainstay of the festival...hopefully with the new improved downtown and streets, and the lake being somewhat cleaner this year, things will begin to improve around Celina and the Grand Lake area

The Celina Lake Festival begins today....

Usually the town is full of vistiors, vendors, the Grand Parade, and Fireworks....hopefully the weather will co-operate and the predicted storms will happen overnight or in the early morning hours.  The Festival began back in the days before World War II, then took a respite...it began anew in the 1960 period, and is the focal point of the Summer season on the west side of Grand Lake....
 


Sam got the first two of his 10 scheduled games at Minster in last night...I'm with him for two tomorrow, then he is back for four games Saturday, and the Semi Final and Final games in the Pony League Division on Sunday.   After tonight, I concentrate on the State ACME Tournament here in Celina....and by this time next week, my baseball season will be over.

Yesterday it was near 100 with the heat index about 110, as the latest heat wave reached it's high point...with the showers that may come, and a few clouds, it may be a bit cooler over the weekend, but with highs in the mid 90s and humidity to match, it will still not be anything that you can call Comfortable.....

Enjoy your weekend....I'll be back later>>>>
