For the Rapids City Times
BABCOCK – Jeremiah’s Crossing will hold its annual Family Fun Fest weekend Aug. 18-19 at Dexter Park.
Saturday’s events will feature a vendor and craft fair, a car show with classic and custom vehicles, food, music by Rumours – a classic rock/variety rock band, raffles, and children’s games.
On Sunday, the festival moves to Jeremiah’s Crossing Ranch for an open house event. The public is invited to come see the ranch and watch riders participate in the annual ride-a-thon, showcasing skills students have been focusing on during lessons.
