— A beloved annual community festival is returning Saturday Aug. 3 with crafts, games, displays, music, fireworks, vendors, a car show and plenty of food, organizers said this week.

To begin at 2 p.m. at the Horicon Community Center off Rte. 8 and the nearby firehall, Horicon Day features displays by civic groups, demonstrations by crafters, live entertainment, and children’s activities and fireworks.

A wide variety of crafters and vendors will be offering their wares. Items available include quilts, rustic furniture, jewelry, pottery, maple syrup, produce and wood crafts. Free health checkups will be conducted by the North Warren ambulance squad.

A dunking booth will allow area residents to plunge local celebrities into cold water.

The local Boy Scouts are bringing back their popular “Monkey Bridge” which allows a challenging but safe experience for children to experience rope-walking.

A spaghetti dinner, prepared by the Tin Teepee eatery, is available from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Snack food is to be available all day.

Country blues/rock music is to be performed live by the Willy Playmore Band beginning at 7 p.m., and they’ll likely be providing over three hours of music.

A fireworks show caps off the day at about 9 p.m.

The Horicon Library, located at the Horicon Community Center, will hold a book sale during the day. The event is sponsored by the Town of Horicon Historical Society and the North Warren Chamber of Commerce. In case of rain, the event will be held the following day.
