Old Settlers Day continues Saturday despite downtown Waynesville rain
WAYNESVILLE, Mo. (July 25, 2009) — Heavy rain earlier this morning didn’t stop Old Settlers’ Day in the Waynesville City Park — at least once the downpour stopped.

Most events in the city park and downtown will continue until 4 p.m. today; a mountain man reunion and black powder shooting sports festival will continue through the weekend.

Old Settlers Day coordinator Kelly Howley said she ignores the puddles of water on the pavement near her information booth, and said most other people do, too.

“Attendance has been really, really good, once the rain stopped,” Howley said. “I think it was at least comparable to last year, and they had rain last year, too.”

Dancing, crafts, and food vendors will remain in the downtown square through the end of the day. Additional events are happening at the Old Stagecoach Stop and Old Courthouse Museum on the courthouse square, with a free shuttle between the two running sponsored by the Armed Services YMCA, which also sponsors the annual Duck Race.

Finals for the duck race will be held at 2:30 p.m., Howley said.

“We have a lot of vendors set up, a lot of crafts set up,” Howley said. “There is something here for the whole family.”
