Flannel Family Fest set for Saturday in Waveland


WAVELAND — Head over to Waveland from 4 to 9 p.m. Saturday for the 2nd annual Waveland Strong Family Fest.

Organizers say the fall weather may not quite have reached us to ensure that flannel is necessary, but feel free to get in the spirit and don your best flannel attire.

Festival-goers will enjoy an evening out with family and friends as well as many activities to enjoy including Kevin Stonerock stories/live music, a cornhole tournament, vendors, chili supper, bounce house and cruise-in.

Stonerock will give a living history performance in authentic period clothing with proper accouterments in first-person style. Saturday’s program centers around the life of Andrew Amonett, a true-to-life frontiersman of the Indiana Territory. The presentation, complete with tall tales, deals with various aspects of frontier life and dangers faced in the Indiana Territory just prior to the War of 1812. Topics include trapping, militia service, Indian affairs, tools, weapons and frontier clothing. Stonerock also will perform 45 minutes of original songs.

In addition to hosting the chili supper, the Waveland Community Volunteer Fire Department will have a raffle to raise funds. Raffle tickets are $10 each for a chance to win a Milwaukee drill set. Options for food include chili, hot dogs, peanut butter sandwiches, drinks and desserts
