Stryker Summerfest In Planning Stages

The Stryker Summerfest planning is underway and members of the Stryker Steering Committee have been busy planning a fun filled day.

The only thing that can’t be planned is the weather. Of course, we are all hoping for a beautiful day with no rain, but that can’t be planned. As history shows, the show will go on!

Last year’s Summerfest had games from the Stryker OCCL, Strong man contest sponsored by Lincoln Street Barbell, food tents from favorite area vendors and community groups, chicken bar-b-que sales, and fun kids’ events. Most of those events are back, will some new events planned in.

The art show has showcased several different types of art from local artists. From paintings, pottery and photography, its great to see hidden talents from the people of the community. Most artists are even eager to sell their works.

The Mojo Doyle Band will return again this year! Even though the weather did not cooperate last year, it did not spoil the sights and sounds of the Mojo Doyle Band. From top country hits to even some classic rock tunes, the award-winning Mojo Doyle Band will not disappoint.

The new attraction this year will be the Peddle Pull. From experience, it will be a fun time to those participating and the spectators watching. Please watch for further information to be included.
