(SPRINGVILLE) – The Spring Creek Antique Tractor Show and Festival was considered a success this weekend in Springville.
The Festival is to help with the operating expenses of the Springville Community Center and Park.
The Park was established in 2004. The park gives the Springville Community a place to exercise with walking path, horseshoes, shelter houses, and playground equipment just to name a few things incorporated into the park.
The efforts by the community members help keep the grass mowed around the gym and park and they do routine maintenance to keep everything in good working order.
This year’s festival was fun, with several events for individuals of all ages to enjoy. Some of the activities included tractor pulls, a bouncy house for the children, food, and music just to name a few things that filled the event list.
Fundraising for the Community Center Park is usually done with a 5K run normally held in the spring of every year, and the Antique Tractor Show and Festival held in the fall.
Efforts to restore the gymnasium is still underway with the money already allocated for that project. However, the group is waiting for permits and approvals to start the project. The Group was hopeful the project could begin in the spring of this year but was definitely hoping to have started the project this month. At this point in time, they are still waiting on final approval.
Several residents have used the facilities gym that was destroyed in an arson fire to host family reunions, picnics, and events.
