Mule Day attracts thousands

October 31, 2003

Calvary - 79-year old Frank Lewis just had open heart surgery, for the second time, but that didn't stop him from coming to Calvary's 31st annual Mule Day. "Well, it's exiting, it's so much going on here," says Lewis.

 He and wife Essie started coming to Mule Day about 28 years ago, when it was a "small" fundraiser for the Lions Club.

Lewis says he's amazed at how much it's grown over the years. "It's so big," he says. "I can remember when these booths like this, about 40 or 50 booths and now it's somewhere around 450."

Ray Livingston came to Mule Day for the first time two years ago, and came up for a preview visit Friday. Livingston says, "We thought we'd come get a jump start before people get all the good stuff. We bought several things here last year, last time we were here so we wanted to come out see what they had to offer."

He adds, "I think it's very organized. They've got lots of neat things to see and sell and you've got to come up here for some syrup right?"

But even if syrup isn't your thing, don't worry, because there's something for everyone at Mule Day. 450 vendors will be at Mule Day . Festivities start at sunrise tomorrow morning and last until sunset. The parade begins at 11 AM.
