Mayer is getting everyone ready for their annual summer festival. Taking place on July 13, the 10th annual Mayer Rising Community Festival is bringing everything they brought last year.
A big draw for residents and fellow community members is the car show. From 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Mayer Community Center, car lovers and visitors from across the region can view approximately 200 cars from all decades. A few types of cars being showcased include original cars, street rods, muscle cars and newer vehicles.
“Things are going really good. For three years in a row we’ve had 200 cars for our car show. Our tractor show is nearing 50 tractors so it’s pretty good,” Tom Stifter, festival chair, said.
The car show has become the attraction that has brought people to Mayer Rising, but the event has continued to transform into a community event with attractions for people of all interests. The free event will also include a tractor show, approximately 32 craft vendors, food, a swap meet, a kids’ state-sanctioned pedal pull and the Zoo Man Show.
Stifter also encourages everyone to stop by and participate in the swap meet.
“It’s our second year trying to get a swap meet going for automotive parts. We’re going to try one more year and hope people show up and that it’s something that grows,” he said.
With plenty of things to do in a short afternoon, the family event will keep people entertained and give everyone enough time to visit with their friends Stifter added.
