2019 Bakersfest well attended, organizers say
The 21st annual Bakersfest was a success, organizers say, with large crowds and a lot of events throughout the day Saturday.
The festival, which has grown over the years, included a big car show, giveaways, food and sno-cone booths and several craft and vendor booths, along with music, games and yard sales around town.
Several school classes set up game booths, and the Bakersfield FFA held a chicken scramble on the ball field, according to Dianna Stover, one of the festival committee members.
“We had a perfect day weather-wise, and everyone just seemed to slow down and enjoy visiting with old friends, neighbors and relatives and meeting the new people who came in,” Stover said.
Stover said several people have shown interest in joining the Bakersfield Festival Committee, which also helps organize the Bakersfield Christmas celebration. The committee will meet at 6 p.m. Monday, Oct. 7, at the Bakersfield School. Everyone interested in helping with festival planning is invited to attend.
