Another fun-filled event is scheduled for North Christian County next month, which will conclude with a fireworks display.
Septemberfest will kickoff Friday, September 7th from 4 until 9pm and September 8th at 10am. Organzier Bill Thielen says there will be a co-ed softball tournament, bouncers for kids, a giant slide, vendors, games and face painting.
There will also be plenty of food and live music Friday and Saturday evening. A kids beauty pageant will take place that Saturday afternoon and a silent cake auction from 2 until 7. Plenty of door prizes, including a laptop computer and UK basketball tickets, will also be up for grabs.
The fireworks display is set for 8:45 on the Saturday evening and Thielen says the Crofton Fire Department will be standing by for safety reasons. The 4th of July display that was to have taken place was called off because of dry conditions at the time.
Anyone wanting to register for softball, for the beauty pageant or as a vendor should call 270-424-5111. All events will be held at Gordon Park.

A Marshall County woman was arrested last night for allegedly driving impaired and wrecking with four children in the vehicle.
The incident happened around 7:20pm, according to a news release from the Marshall County Sheriff’s Office, which says 26-year old Haley Schroader of Benton failed to negotiate a curve and ran off Moors Camp Highway.
Schroader’s van ended up in a wooded area and responding officers noticed the odor of alcohol on her person. Police say Schroader admitted to drinking alcohol before getting behind the wheel.
Schroader and her four children, ages six to nine, were taken to Marshall County Hospital for treatment of their injuries. The mother was arrested on her second DUI charge in the last five years after treatment and was also charged with wanton endangerment for putting her children in danger.
Schroader’s husband, Blake Schroader, fled the scene of the wreck on foot and has charges pending against him.
