THE SHOW MUST GO ON…
Despite the threatening cloud of Covid-19 and variants overlooking Louisa this weekend with 96 new cases in the past week, Louisa Mayor Harold Slone, president of the Septemberfest 2021 Committee, and the other members decided to let Septemberfest go on this year.
In neighboring Johnson County the popular Apple Festival was cancelled two weeks ago bringing speculation that this year’s Septemberfest activities might also be called off but as no word came it became obvious in the past few days that Slone and the committee intended to have what Slone called “the biggest, best Septemberfest ever because we had to cancel last year”.
A gospel sing will be featured this year at 4:00 pm Saturday which will mark the first time in recent memory for bluegrass gospel has been featured.
And the Septemberfest Bowl is back with the Dawgs hosting the Russell Red Devils tonight at Luke Varney Stadium with the Youth Football League also sponsoring activities.
The two day show will begin at 11:00 AM Friday morning with the Opening Ceremonies with Slone in charge and the official opening of the event’s anticipated 45 booths selling everything from Bahama Mamas to ice cream in the city streets which serve as the midway.
