Ella Chappell and friend Jade Smith had fun on the big swing at the festival.
Lewisport City Administrator Jason Roberts said the 2023 Heritage Festival went very well, and the weather was perfect. “It was the first festival I’ve worked where we didn’t have to worry about a chance for rain at some point,” he said. “We had a record number of vendors including food and crafts.
New rides were a big hit this year, including more rides for younger kids. Next year the ride company plans to provide more rides for the older kids as well.
We also had a great turn out for the annual tractor pull…We take each year as a learning experience and try to make the next year better. This would never be possible without the help from our Mayor, City of Lewisport employees, City council members, and the festival committee.”
Hanging out at the Heritage Festival are Cindy, Rachel and Maddie Payne, Carrie Dixon and Robin Shultz.
The crowd watching the beauty pageants seem to be enjoying themselves.
