Blunt Fest Royalty Queen Mavis  and King Jerry Walton

The camaraderie that follows when a community joins for summer fun was in evidence at Saturday’s Blunt Fest event.

This year’s Blunt Fest committee concentrated the activity in the two block area of Blunt’s business district, lending an air of hustle and bustle to the community reminiscent of days gone by. With the inflatables, the vendor fair, the bean bag tourney, the face painting and snow cones, and the field, road, water and auto show all within a stone’s throw of each other, Fest-goers could take in all the action without missing out on catching up with their neighbors.

A highlight of the day was the red neck poker run which took card players on a tour of the community as they worked to assemble a winning poker hand.

For lunch, Fest-goers enjoyed the offerings from the Spare Tire lunch truck, and the Blunt Rural Fire Department provided a meal that sustained the crowd well into the evening while they enjoyed the musical stylings of The Dirty Boot Band and Big Skillet along with other local entertainers.
