Events begin at 10 a.m. with a horseshoe tournament to be held behind Delaney’s Restaurant on Main Street, with registration beginning at 9 a.m. The celebration will include displays of old logging tools, pictures, and memorabilia from Fountain. There will also be a tractor show along with kids games and crafts.
