There will be the Third Annual PTO carnival on from 5-8 p.m. Oct. 28. There will be games, prizes, food, and a silent auction. This is a great time for families, so come out to Iola elementary and get ready for some fun!

Have you heard of the newest store to hit Iola? The Mercantile at Main St. Market is now open and ready for business. The store is made up of 20 different vendors with more to come. The hours of operation are 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Thursdays and Fridays, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturdays.

I was able to go visit last week and there are some amazing finds! Available for purchase are antiques, furniture, clothing, and home décor. One vendor available makes custom wood end tables. In the front of the shop are some truly unique air plants with metal, wood and glass elements. The store has so many neat things! Robin the owner was so kind and helpful, and makes you feel right at home as soon as you walk through the doors. I also found the pieces to be very reasonably priced. This would be a great place to pick up some gifts for the holidays!

Saturday marks the Ninth Annual Iola Hay Day Festival, hosted by the Iola Community center. The morning will kick off at 8 a.m. for the bulldog dash, followed by the parade at 9:30 a.m.

After the parade there will be a costume contest, car show, Jr. Aggie Wranglers, chili cook-off and lots of vendors for shopping and food. There will also be live music by Indian and The Jones Band. If you have never attended, I would highly recommend doing so, this is a wonderful day for the whole family.

Registration for the Bulldog Dash 5k run/walk will open at 7 a.m. at the Iola Fire Station. The fee is $25. To receive a t-shirt, registration must be received by Oct. 7. Forms are located in the high school office.

The Iola Athletic Booster Club will raffle off a signed 2017 Jose Altuve world series jersey at the final Iola home football game against Bartlett Nov. 8. Tickets are $5 each or $20 for five.

If there is something that you would like to be placed in the Iola article, please contact me at Junebug.crosby@gmail.com. Please let me know by Thursday afternoon so I can place it in the article for the next week.
