As recently as a month ago, the unique, popular, and ultra-green Prairie Fest was in danger of going bye-bye forever.
Five years of organizing the annual festival had taken a toll on founder Don Young and his dedicated volunteers. Some wanted to make like prairie dogs and disappear in a hole for a spell.
However, word spread quickly and several fresh-faced volunteers have stepped up. More are needed, but Young is now feeling good that the 6th Annual Prairie Fest is going to happen on April 23.
If you want to volunteer or become a vendor, go to the Friends of Tandy Hills Natural Area for info.
Young recently took this photo at Tandy Hills, the coolest natural area you’ll find so close to a major downtown area:
