The newly-organized Wellman Chamber of Commerce has announced it will host its first event next month. Tom Buckwalter is the Chamber Director in Wellman. He says the group is putting on the Quad County Pork Fest October 8.
The four counties represented during the festival include Washington, Keokuk, Iowa, and Johnson.
Buckwalter says a number of events will be happening throughout the day, including a pork burger eating contest, a motorcycle show, a flu shot clinic, and more. He says residents are welcome to join the city in Wellman’s North Park and also at the Wellman YMCA.
The 2011 Quad County Pork Fest begins at 7:00 a.m. Saturday, October 8.
