TOLEDO CHRONICLE - Family fun and food will abound at the 1st annual Toledo Stoplight Festival set for Friday evening, July 9 on the Tama County Courthouse square.

To be held in conjunction with the Toledo Farmers Market and the T-T Area Chamber of Commerce BBQ Cook-Off contest, the celebration is centered around the vintage 1949 stoplight at Broadway and High.

There’s live music on the bandstand featuring “Four Happy Chaps” followed by “Mr. Baber’s Neighbors: The Solar String Band.”

For young people the “Bouncy Castle, Sandhill Nickel Scramble and Toledo Fire Department kids water fights are planned.

The popular BBQ contest invites the public to judge the delicious offerings of the contestants.

The Farmers Market always has a big array of locally-grown produce, homemade baked goods and craft items.

Originally built by Bill Turbett Masonry and wired by Mike Striley, the stoplight base was reconstructed recently by Kevin Turbett Masonry.
