A weekend full of activities and family fun is coming to Millet August 21, 22 and 23: the Millet Harvest Fair is returning.

Ag Society member Irene Knull dropped by The Pipestone Flyer August 6 with a list of activities for the 30th anniversary celebration that offers virtually somethi9gn for everyone.

The weekend begins Friday evening as entries are accepted for the bench show; entries can be dropped off at the agriplex from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. Phone Knull at 780-387-4442 with any questions.

Friday night is also movie night at the agriplex; the movie starts at sundown (roughly 9 p.m.), and is followed by fireworks.

Saturday starts off early as the Millet Legion offer their annual pancake breakfast from 7:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. at the Legion.

The breakfast is followed by the annual parade, sponsored by the local Lions Club. The parade starts at 11 a.m. and has the theme of paying tribute to past presidents. The parade starts at the intersection of 53 Ave. and 51 Street, runs west on 50th Street, then south on 52 Street, west on 45th and wraps up at the agriplex. Registrations are being accepted for the parade; call Pat at 780-387-4619 to register.

After the parade, check out the trade show at the agriplex. Registrations are being accepted for the trade show for a very reasonable $35 per table; call Pat to register.

Also offered Saturday afternoon are bouncey castles, the bench show viewing where visitors can see who earned the top ribbons, face-painting, petting zoo, birdhouse building, a Millet Fire Department equipment demo and kids games.

Saturday night the fun continues with the family supper at 6 p.m. The Old Bank is catering at the agriplex banquet hall, and the menu includes prime rib, chicken breast, cabbage rolls, salads, veggies, potatoes and gravy, carrot cake and cheese cake for only $30 per person. Live entertainment will follow, and the Ag Society is sponsoring a silent auction to raise funds to support the agriplex.

Knull said the funds are needed, as the agriplex is always in need of repairs or upgrading. “It’s never-ending,” she said. Knull asked that supper tickets be purchased on or before August 17, and any donations for the silent auction are gratefully accepted.

On Sunday at 10:30 a.m., the Ag Society is offering an interdenominational church service too.

She also noted that volunteers are always needed for an event of this size. Those interested in helping can call Knull.
