The Alex Stuchlik Polka Band from Lost Springs performs during the Friday-evening downtown mixer that kicked off this year?s Hillsboro Family/Folk Festival. 5-Man Trio was the featured performing group and drew rave reviews. Also downtown, the Chamber of Commerce served barbecue and several classic cars were on display. Off and on rain showers dampened participation at this year festival, which culminated with the annual demolition derby on Sunday evening. On Memorial Day, the American Legion hosted its annual program of remembrance at Memorial Park. Kattie King / Free Press
