One area community will conclude this summer’s round of festivals and celebrations this weekend.  The Lone Tree Fall Festival kicks off tomorrow night.

Organizer Russ Forbes says the weekend festivities begin with a flag-raising by the town’s Boy Scout troop followed by a number of events throughout the day Friday and Saturday.  He says residents can see the crawdad races, participate in the bids for baskets auction, and watch their community’s youth showcase their talents in a show tomorrow night.

The 5K and 1 mile fun run takes place Saturday morning at 8:30, and the parade winds through Lone Tree at 11:00.  Saturday’s events conclude with a fireworks show at 10:15 that night.
