Petersburg is making plans to host another party this Labor Day weekend.
The Back Field Country Bash is returning for the second year in a row.
That’s Randy Nefzger, who says the Petersburg Commercial Club held the event last year to celebrate the community’s 150th anniversary, with a concert on the ball diamond featuring Confederate Railroad.
This year’s event is set for Saturday, September 3rd, with music from Ashton Shepherd, a country artist who has had a few hit songs on the radio.
And Beau Timmerman will kick off the event with live music starting at 4 pm. Along with the concert and fireworks, there will be bounce houses, a kids’ pedal pull, beverages and food stands featuring the Delaware County Cattlemen, Pork Producers and Dairy Council, along with the Petersburg Achievers 4-H Club.
The event runs from 4 to 11 pm the Saturday of Labor Day weekend. And you don’t need to buy your tickets ahead of time this year. You can just get them at the gate for $25, with kids 10 and under free.
