Memorial Day Weekend in Hannibal will be fun. Twain on Main will be taking place downtown May 23-May 24, and even though the regular season for the Hannibal Cavemen does not officially begin until May 27, the team has announced a special exhibition game at Clemens Field on Memorial Day.
Memorial Day, the 'unofficial start of summer,' will be on Monday, May 25. Memorial Day Weekend is always packed full of activities and events all around the area. Here is our 2015 Memorial Day Weekend activity guide for the Quincy/Hannibal area.
Over the past few days, I've been thumbing through a number of history books about Hannibal, Ralls County, and Quincy. Quincy: A Pictorial History by Carl Landrum is an excellent resource for anyone that likes to read about local history. Here are five interesting facts I've picked up from the book.
Local history is something I always find interesting. A member of our staff has a collection of books on Hannibal, Quincy and Ralls County history, and was kind enough to let me take a look through them. The one I'm reading right now is Hannibal: The Otis Howell Collection by Steve Chou. Not only is the book full of great pictures from the late 1940s through about 1970, but the captions are incredibly informative. Here are a few interesting pieces of information I've picked up from the book.
Did you know that Ralls County, Missouri is the only Ralls County in the United States? A co-worker was kind enough to lend me a few books on local history, including Ralls County by K. Allen Ballard, part of Arcadia Publishing's Images of America series. There are a ton of great pictures dating all the way back to the early 1800s published in the book, and it is also full of information about the county, its people and its economy. Here are just a few interesting things I learned from flipping through it.
Another Dogwood Festival is in the history books. We hope everyone had a great weekend, and had a great time at the parade and the festival, despite the slight rain delay for live music on Saturday night.
