About 40 merry-makers danced the night away at the community center on Friday night. It was Pershing County 4-H’s first Snow Ball.
“Kids enjoyed playing the limbo, swing dancing and line dancing,” said 4-H Coordinator Colby Burke, on hand to greet the party-goers.
Jon Damec and Daniel Shaugnessy handled the music. Many people remember them from their DJ gigs at Frontier Days.
There was also live music. Lovelock newcomer Valerie Antus, 11, sang ‘Girl, Put Your Records On.’
“I love singing for people,” she said. “I hope I get to do it again soon.”
The 4-H cooking club hosted a bake sale during the festivities with all the proceeds going to the club. The proceeds from the Snow Ball are earmarked for Imlay and Lovelock’s service-oriented community clubs.
Saturday started bright and early at the Lovelock Volunteer Fire Department. The firefighters cooked up French toast, eggs, bacon and sausage for Breakfast with Santa, an annual tradition canceled last year due to Covid restrictions.
Later, the streets were closed to traffic for the street fair. Eleven vendors set up on Main Street for a steady stream of shoppers. The Nolan family won the digital scavenger hunt. Families decorated cookies at the depot with the Mustang Youth Team.
The day ended on the courthouse steps with a luminary tribute to Lovelock’s first responders.
