Dixon will attempt to bring a second World Record title to town this Sunday at the 26th Annual Dixon Lambtown Festival. That record would be the Largest Group of Knitters in One Place. Currently, the record is held by Roscommon, Ireland where a group of 1,147 knitters gathered, so Dixon needs your help to reach their goal of 1,200 knitters.
Grab your knitting needles and join the crowd this Sunday, Oct. 7, 12-noon at the fairgrounds. The group will be collecting the squares created for donation to the Afghans for Afghans project, if you would like to participate. Download your application HERE.
There are plenty of opportunities for fun at this weekend's two day Lamb Fest, Oct. 6-7. The festival will be held at the Dixon MayFair Grounds, 655 South 1st St., from 10 A.M. to 6 P.M.
Admission is just $2.00 for adults, Children 6-13 $1.00, and kids 5 and under are FREE! There is also limited free parking.
You will find craft and fiber booths, competitions, spinning classes, sheep dogs at work, knitting instruction, lamb cooking demonstrations, and a variety of great food celebrating the lamb industry and the rich agricultural heritage of the region.
The event will be alive with entertainment featuring great bands and dance routines, and a Dinner Dance Saturday evening with live music.
