The Twain on Main Festival will proceed as planned in Hannibal during Memorial Day Weekend.

“This year’s festival is gearing up to be even bigger and better than last year,” said Gail Bryant, Director of the Hannibal Convention & Visitors Bureau.  With the levee gates out there is plenty of public parking downtown and several special activities planned throughout the festival.  The stores and shops downtown as well as the festival vendors are looking forward to a very busy weekend.”

While parts of the city experienced a prolong power outage as a result of Monday night's storm, power was restored to downtown fairly quickly on Tuesday. On Wednesday, the flood walls were taken out, and clean up efforts on Main Street have made it possible for the festival to go on.

Mark Twain’s 'The Prince and the Pauper' is the theme of this year's Twain on Main, which will feature over 80 vendors offering items from wearable art to unique writing instruments and leather works. There will also be food vendors and entertainment scheduled throughout the weekend.

Festival hours are Saturday 10-6 and Sunday 10-5.
