What is everyone’s favorite part of a festival? That’s right, the food! Once again, most food available during the Prairie Days festival will be provided by local non-profit organizations, so not only are you filling your belly, you are helping out a good cause. Parking and admission to Prairie Days are free, so that gives families a few extra bucks to splurge on some pie and ice cream. From hamburgers to hot dogs, walking tacos to sloppy joes and sausages, there is sure to be a sandwich to satisfy everyone’s cravings. There will also be french fries, kettle corn, pork rinds, fresh fruit, cider slushies, and much more. Don’t forget to wash all the food down with some old fashioned sodas and top off the meal with a piece of the best pie in Darke County from our pie baking contest! Prairie Days has extended hours for the third year, so come for lunch and grab an early supper before leaving. The festival will be held Saturday, September 24th from 10am-5pm and Sunday, September 25th from 12pm-5pm.
