Spring in Marshall County

Spring in Marshall County


 

Yellow River Festival


The spring, it seems, is something we wait for. A time when everything starts up again. Buds show up on the trees. The earth is tilled for a new crop. Birds return. And we open our windows to welcome in the warm breezes.

There's nothing we look forward to more than our Farmer's Markets opening their doors in May. The Culver Farmers' Market and Plymouth Farmers' Market are two of our favorites. You'll find annual bedding plants and perennials, homemade jams and jellies, popcorn, all-natural wreaths, fresh and dried flowers, and fresh farm produce that was harvested by the grower just hours before the Market opens for business.  It doesn't get much fresher than that.

We also eagerly await the annual Yellow River Festival. This unique celebration focuses on the first 30 years of Marshall County—from 1834-1864. Period music and dancing, storytelling, Indian dances and demonstrations, food, crafts and activities for children will bring you back through out history almost two centuries. And you can even participate in a little spring cleaning by taking part in river cleanup events.

With spring comes a desire to try something new. And a great place to try some new flavors is the Taste of Culver. Enjoy specialties from Culver's diverse and unique restaurants, tap your toe to live music, gather the fixings for your own gourmet meal at the Farmers' Market and shop the many craft booths.

We know that spring is in full swing—or should we say, salsa—when it's time for the Latino Festival. It's a colorful one-day event that draws over 6,000 people to Plymouth to experience the culture of the Latino community.
