As the clock ticks down the the start of the 2015 River Raisin Festival, a few changes have been made to accommodate some activities. According to festival officials, the decision to move the Saturday tractor pulls to the Heritage Tractor Pull site on the south end of Jipson Street was made Tuesday evening. Although they hoped to be able to use some of the west side of the park for loading and unloading tractors to the track, rain Tuesday made that area of the park too wet to use.
Two other changes to keep in mind before attending the festival.
* Bingo by the Blissield Athletic Boosters from 4-8 p.m. Saturday has been moved to the picnic shelter near the shuffleboard courts in Ellis Park.
* The Garden Train sponsored by the Blissfield Model Railroad Club (also open for tours during the festival) will be set up in the pavilion near the Ellis Park playground west of the softball diamonds.
