Gourd festival is this weekend

The Show Me Gourd Annual Festival will be this weekend and will host gourd artists and their creations from across the country. The festival will be closed to society members on Friday but open to the public on Saturday and Sunday. “We just want to get the news out about gourds and what you can do with them,” Show Me Gourd Society President Madonna Watermon said.
