Spencer, IA (KUOO Radio) - Not one, but two celebrations will be going on simultaneously in Spencer. In addition to Flagfest, the city will also be celebrating its 150th anniversary on Friday June 11th and Saturday June 12th.
Things kick off Friday with a street dance. Some of the main highlights will be on Saturday, including a big parade.
Sheriffa Jones of the Spencer Chamber of Commerce says the fun Saturday afternoon will shift to the Clay County Fairgrounds. "From 2:00 until 6:00 there's going to be lots of activities out there for those that are zero to 100. Fireworks on Saturday night which a new thing that we've added, that's at the Clay County Fairgrounds as well. That will start at about 10:00 pm. You know, on Saturday if you're looking for other things to do and you want to get into the AC, the time capsule contents will be on display out at the Clay County Heritage Center as well."
