Wykoff Fall Fest welcomes new events in 2014

Mon, Sep 8th, 2014
Posted in Wykoff All

Wykoff’s annual town celebration, Fall Fest, will be on Saturday, September 27. The all-day event will feature some old favorites as well as some great new additions. Starting with a 7 a.m. registration, Fall Fest introduces their first annual Steeple Relay Race. The race will consist of four legs and start at St. John’s Luthern Church, continue to Emmanuel Lutheran, then onto St. Killians and finish out back at St. John’s. Each team of runners will consist of four people (all ages).

To add a little more fun to the race, each team member will have to carry an item indicative to the fall harvest until they reach their destination. Everything from a head of cabbage to a dozen ears of corn will be carried by each relay runner as they make their way to their teammate at each steeple. Registration for this event can be done at Wykoff City Hall or the Shortstop gas station; cost of entry is $5 per person or $20 per team and includes a free t-shirt for participants! Prizes will be awarded for the top three finishing teams and the race is sponsored by Thompson Motors.

Again, this year, there will be a talent show held at the Kingsland Middle School. The show will actually begin at 7 p.m. on Friday and continue at 5:30 p.m. on Saturday. Song, dance and many other talents are welcomed! Registration for this event can also be found at City Hall and the Shortstop.

Fall Fest is German themed so expect polka music aplenty as well as microbrews and many other fine beers. Hit up the parade early, stay for delicious lunch and try your hand at Bingo, also a new addition to the town’s festival. All events take place in downtown Wykoff, including many children’s activities. Make sure your kids try their hand at pumpkin decorating in preparation of fall!

The Wykoff Historical Society will be celebrating their 25 year anniversary as part of Fall Fest. Ed’s Museum will be open for tours during this time. The museum was once a general store and home to one of Wykoff’s most beloved residents, Ed Krueger. The museum is packed with decades worth of memories. What has been tagged as one of Minnesota’s ‘weirdest museums’, Ed’s includes a box that holds the skeleton of his dead cat, along with Hollywood pinups, every issue of TV Guide from 1954 to 1989, a lollipop tree from 1937 which still holds some of the original lollipops and much more. A visit to Ed’s Museum is a must, as it is one of Minnesota’s q .....
