According to news website QCOnline.com, John Deere Attractions, along with the Quad City Botanical Center and the Niabi Zoo, will host children's activities during the event, which will be held at the arts and crafts tent located in Orion's Central Park.
Festivities start on Friday, September 3, and end at 6 p.m. on September 5. Along with the craft tent sponsored by John Deere, children will be able to take part in a fun run, a candy hunting contest and a kids' tractor pull.
Other features include a battle of the bands and a talent contest and a breakfast sponsored by the local Lions Club. All of the events are free to enter, although the festival does collect donations that help area groups.
Festivals like Orion's are a featured event for smaller towns across the country and may mark the height of the summer for residents in those areas. They often showcase activities that cater to kids.
