Taking a story walk
Those attending the Sikeston in Bloom Festival on Saturday can meander along the Sikeston Library's Story Walk and by the 18th stop will have read a book. The walk, beginning in American Legion Park, will take visitors throughout the historic downtown area. Children's librarian Ann Thompson hammers in the beginning sign with the assistance of Sue Tangeman, library director and HMDG board member. The festival will be from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday and will also offer crafts, spring flowers and plants and blue grass music.
