The Mountain View Art Festival was held on September 7 & 8, 2019. It was a fun-filled weekend that took over the town. The Scarecrows on Parade were on the front yard of the museum. Everyone had a chance to try their hand at rope making and taking turns grooming and talking to Hope, the lovely Clydesdale owned by the LeClaires.
There were crafts, games and jigsaw puzzles. As always the railroads inside and out were a great hit!
