A Walk About Town: Train and Trade Day, & Cinco de Mayo

By Staff, 05/8/17 5:30 AM

HOPE–This weekend was a busy one in Hope with several co-related events going on all day Saturday. Most were in walking distance of one another and participants and attendees traveled freely back and forth between them. There was the Train Day 5k run (see related article below), The BBQ-Rib Cook-off (see related article), bake sales, beanbag tosses, and a children’s interactive area with Bubble College (pictured) and Making Slime (pictured).

The Boy Scouts of Troop 5, dressed in traditional Boy Scout attire, were out and about attending many events including performing theĀ Flag Ceremony at the Cinco de Mayo Festival at the President William Jefferson Clinton Birthplace Home National Historic Site (pictured).

It was a beautiful Spring day and lots of people were out to participate, to sings and dance and cook and eat and throw some bean bags and make bubbles.
