Local organizers have announced the 2021 celebration is on. Following suit with other Iowa communities, plans are moving ahead for multiple celebrations June 18, 19, and 20 on Father's Day weekend.
The weekend kicks off June 18 with an All-School Reunion at the Hausbarn-Heritage Park. Entertainment decisions are still being made. The Alumni Association will be seeking contributions to offset the cost of hosting the reunion. Donations may be sent to PO Box 191, Manning, IA.
Manning's 137th Kinderfest will be observed June 19 during the day. That evening entertainment will be found on Main Street where everybody can "Party on the Bricks" with musical entertainers Brad Morgan and the Aged Spirits band.
People are being asked to help support Party on the Bricks with personal donations.
Plans for other weekend events, such as the 100th anniversary of the Chamber of Commerce, are still in the early stages.
