Whether you were looking for food-eating contests, classic cars and tractors, a tire race or – of course – sauerkraut, you could find it in Forreston over the weekend during the village's annual Sauerkraut Days. The event sponsored by the American Legion Families and the Forrestons Hometown Days Committee served up 3 days of family fun from Friday through Saturday. There was music and magic, critters and crafts, softball and sunrise yoga, and all sorts of community-minded fun.
