Peabody Festival success in spite of weather


People from all over Marion County attended a music, art and conservation festival hosted by Flint Hills Counterpoint where all types of activities could be enjoyed from listening to music to creating art to feeding goats and more.
The rain and wind did not stop the crowd from coming out and enjoying all the festival had to offer.


Rain did not stop Flint Hills Counterpoint from holding a music, art and conservation festival over the weekend even if the event planners had to get a bit creative and alter plans a bit.

“We were lucky we had a magic window of sun and no mosquitoes from 1 to 6, and then we moved our sunset concert to Tabor.We had good attendance and a lovely time,” said Flint Hills Counterpoint Project Director Susan Mayo.

The rest of the festival was still held in Peabody where there was music all day long as well as conservation and art conversations, art activities for the young and young at heart and art installation viewing available all day long.

The group plans to hold more events like this through out the summer.
