Luther Days Kicks Off Weekend of Celebration

The Village of Luther began their annual Luther Days celebration Thursday.

Luther Days runs through Sunday.

There’s everything from a watermelon eating contest to a fishing tournament.

Miss Luther will be crowned Thursday night and there will also be karaoke on the main stage.

There’s plenty of food and drinks to enjoy over the next few days.

The Luther Days Association says a number of volunteers and donations make the community celebration possible.

They say it’s all about bringing the community together for a good time.

“All the locals come out and get together and then people that lived here before, come home for this weekend just to see their family and we have people from all over that come enjoy the festivities,” said Rose Wetherell, an organizer of the event.

There’s also a fireworks show scheduled for Friday night at dusk.
