However, the majority of our activities will be held on Saturday, May 13th. The Fun Run will get set the festival in motion early Saturday morning. Everyone is invited for fun, music, games, good food, and great bands! Don't forget to slip on your cowboy boots for some dancing!  Gedenke is where we meet up with ole' friends and make some new ones.  Come share in the wonderful German heritage that makes this community so great.   See y'all this Mother's Day Weekend.
