LEXINGTON, Minn. – (Sept. 26, 2019) – From rock climbing and fire trucks to pony rides and corn holes, the annual Lexington fall festival kicked off this past weekend on South Highway Drive near Cowboy’s Saloon.
“Community outreach. To be more involved in the community, helping to educate and be a good role model and be an inspiration for the youth and for our community,” said Chief of Lexington Fire Department Gary Grote.
The annual festival brings together vendors from the community.
"The organization of this event is to basically hooking up with the city, the merchants, particularly the Cowboy's Saloon here, they wanted to help us reach out to the community and be more involved and it has grown from there, where we have more of the merchants in the city involved and the police department, the fire department so it's grown a little bit," said Grote.
For some, it's not the first time they've been to the festival.
Participants believe that it's all about community.
There are a lot of activities individuals are excited for.
