Burgoo Festival and others

Posted by wlpo on October 10, 2010

It’s the 41St Burgoo Festival in Utica from 9 – 5pm.  It’s an annual fundraising event by the LaSalle County Historical Society.  Vendors will line Utica’s streets.  Live music through the day.  Raynette Jones, Burgoomeister, said serving of  the Burgoo Stew would commence early this year – just after 9am.  A secret ingredient has been added…brown sugar. Guess it’s not a secret anymore. 

The Shadows of the Blue and Gray event continues today in Princeton.  Re-enactors will play out roles of people who likely were in the Civil War.  Battles will be staged, as well.  It’s occuring at City-County Park north of Princeton.
