Capping the third and final day of the festival was a colorful and well-attended Fireworks Finale in Memory Isle Park, a display that followed “Rockin’ Country” music by Alan Turner and the Steel Horse Band on the Main Stage.
Among the many highlights of the day were the Firefighters Pancake Breakfast at the fire station, the Classic Car, Truck and Motorcycle Show which filled Historic Downtown Three Rivers with vintage vehicles and lots of spectators, the KidsZone in Scidmore Park, and the finale of the ‘Kiss the Pig’ Contest, a fundraiser conducted by the Friends of Scidmore Park Petting Zoo FSPPZ. The event saw Mayor Tom Lowry pucker up and kiss Bacon the pig in late afternoon activity at the Zoo. The contest raised a grand total of $4,141.
