LEBANON - Predictions of a soggy Saturday afternoon have scuttled plans for the Lebanon Festival's Poker Run and Movie Night, but the festival, itself, will go on as planned, the festival's lead organizer said on Thursday.
Georgianna Allen said both of the postponed events will be rescheduled for June 23.
However, the rest of the festival will go on as planned with almost all of the major events intact.
Accuweather forecasters are predicting a cloudy morning on Saturday with a variable chance of rain beginning around 2 p.m. and hanging around through late Sunday afternoon.
The festival kicks off with a Pancake Breakfast from 8-10 a.m. put on inside the Hanson School gym by the West Lebanon Ladies Circle.
Dozens of vendors will be set up within the Hanson School parking lots from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Vendor booths include the Phoenix Elite Dance Studio, Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, Jams and Jellies, 4X4 Proving Ground, Kerfluffle Fiber Farm, Dotty Jeanne's Boutique, Karri L Moser, Author, American Frozen Food out of Scarborough and a balloon animalist as well as many local crafters to name a few.
In addition Belgian Meadows Farm will be offering free wagon rides from 9 a.m.-noon, Allen said.
Throughout the day there will be many other offerings such as the Bookmobile and a penny raffle inside the Hanson Gym that will benefit a scholarship for a Lebanon college student.
Kids' games and activities include an obstacle course, a dunk tank, a kids' striker - like the strongman carnival game - a Twister game, giant Jenga and Yahtzee games and even a tug of war.
So far the only volunteer for the dunk tank is Selectmen Chair Chip Harlow.
Throughout the day hungry festivalgoers can also take advantage of the Soccer Shack, which will be serving hot dogs, hamburgers and pulled pork as well as other surprise offerings.
A Dorcas Society ham and bean supper will be served in the Hanson School gym from 5-7 p.m.
Entertainment for the festival will be provided by the duet of Ken and Mo from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. weather permitting.
All the games and music are free, Allen said.
