From the Tipp City Mum Festival Committee:
On behalf of all the Mum Festival volunteers, we are honored to welcome everyone to the 2009 Tipp City Mum Festival. This year’s theme is “We Love our Mums”
Our festivities begin Friday night, September 25 at 5 PM with the 18th Annual Antique Car Cruise-In/Street Dance, and the Little Mr. and Miss Mum Pageant at 7 PM at the Tipp Roller Mill on Main Street. Many of our downtown merchants will have extended hours for your shopping pleasure.
Saturday features a wonderful parade right down Main Street beginning at 10 AM with local and surrounding area bands, floats, clowns, classic cars, and many other entertaining units.
After the parade, be sure to visit the Tipp City Park, located on North Third Street, for a great arts and crafts festival, great concessions, a merchants market and wonderful entertainment. The children, big and small, will enjoy the 9th Annual MumKids Land held each year at the tennis courts. They will find themselves using up energy playing on inflatables of all types from noon to 8 PM on Saturday and noon to 5 PM on Sunday.
A complete schedule of free events and entertainment for the entire weekend include the Tipp City Community Bank, Ronald McDonald, Jazzercise, Kettering Banjo Society, Funky G and the Groove Machine, Queens Pageant Talent, Cloggers, and Stranger. Updates on the events can be found on the Tipp City Mum Festival website www.tippcitymumfestival.org or follow as a fan on Facebook, Tipp City Mum Festival.
Sunday, the arts and crafts festival continues in the Tipp City Park, beginning at 11 AM. Be sure to check out our vendors and entertainment until 6 PM. We would like to send out a very special thanks to all of the fabulous volunteers that have given their time over the past year to make this year’s Mum Festival a great success.
We also wish to extend our sincere thanks and appreciation to all of the great sponsors that have contributed to the Mum Festival. Without the help and support of all these people, the Mum Festival would not be possible.
We are always looking for new people to volunteer their creative talents and sponsors for the events. If you are interested in helping with the 2009 Mum Festival, please call Tipp-Monroe Community Services at 667-8631 or e-mail [email protected]
Again, we thank everyone for their support and hope you will enjoy the 2009 Tipp City Mum Festival on September 25-27!
