Twain on Main is ‘Roughing It’ This Weekend in Downtown Hannibal
The Old West is coming to life this Memorial Day Weekend in Downtown Hannibal for this year's Twain on Main.
This year's Twain on Main is going to have everything. From arts & crafts to a Wild West Saloon show in the saloon, food, and pony rides there is sure to be something for the entire family to enjoy. This year the festival is going to celebrate the life and works of Mark Twain. Based on Twain's book Roughing It, takes place in the Wild West as a young Twain tries to make it in the west.
The festival, which takes place May 28 - 29 will have all-day activities, live performances, children's entertainment, and more. Festival-goers can enjoy free arts & crafts, food & drink, watch a bank robbery happen, and local music up and down Main Street, on both days.
New this year you can watch the Wild West Show & Can-Can Dancers in the saloon on Saturday and Sunday, plus an 1880s gunfight by the South Fork Regulators. Also, up and down Main Street vendor booths selling merchandise and food. There is no reason to say you have nothing to do this weekend. This is one of my favorite festival events that take place each year and I know once you go you will fall in love with it too. This is a free event and for more information, you can check out Twain on Main at twainonmain.com.
