Nature Festival 2014 has ended! We had a great weekend!
With dark skies looming all day Saturday, we assumed that people were hesitant to come out to Foxburg, it looked like it could rain at any second. However, all of the Bird, Nature Walks and Tours did have an excellent amount of those who attended. We had Vendors and Exhibitors set up all day long, hoping that the rain would hold off.
Today, at the “Take Flight” 5K, we had over 100 run/walkers and the first runner finished in about 18 minutes! Proceeds from today’s event will go to Skye’s Spirit Wildlife Rehabiltation Center. If you weren’t here yesterday, you missed the beautiful birds they had with them!
After the 5K, we had the Chinese Auction for the Birdhouses painted by ACValley School District Students, if you placed a ticket in any one of the bags for a birdhouse, check your answering machine, we called those who did! We would like to thank the students for painting such beautiful birdhouses for us! Also, Congratulations to the winners of the Facebook Contest. Payton Duffee, 1st Grader won in the Elementary Category and Skylar Wyman, won in the High School Category.
We would like to thank the Vendors and Exhibitors for hanging out with us all day Saturday and even some today. A special thank you to all of our sponsors and of course, YOU, for making this weekend a success! Hope you enjoyed and see you next year!0
