In an event that catered to kids, the Midland States Bank Kids Day delivered on Petunia Fest’s promise of fun for all ages Saturday. Young festivalgoers hopped on Big Wheels, stuffed themselves into sacks, got a good dose of dousing, and enjoyed other fun activities during the morning event at Reagan Middle School. The event also featured arts and crafts, a visit from Hoo Haven, and a magic show. The festival wrapped up Sunday, but there was still plenty to do during the celebration of all things Dixon. Among the events: Pancakes in the Park, a talent show, music, and, of course, the parade – all capped off by the Petunia Fest pyrotechnics.
