Applefest is this Weekend
It’s Applefest this Saturday and Sunday, so there will be some changes to parking and traffic flow. Traffic will come in and out on Washington from Thomas to Hwy. 45, so there will be NO Parking on Washington Street 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. both days
Other no parking areas are Spring Street Washington to Cherry (8-6); Market Street from Blackhawk to Welt (reserved for ADA disabled parking) Short Street (6-6); Thomas in downtown, Main Street from Market to Spring 6 a.m. Sat. to 6 p.m. Sun.; Main Street Alleys 6-6; all downtown parking lots (City Hall lots are open).
Parking will be allowed on the West side of Cherry, facing North (8-6), and the east side of Welt, facing north (7-6).
The portion of Main in front of the Methodist church is included in the parking ban to give shuttle buses more room to line-up and load or unload. They will still turn on to Short and Welt to go to parking areas north of town.
The Parade Saturday will line up in Citadel Addition, Goodlet Circle and some at the top of Main Street. The Parade starts at 10:00 a.m. and comes in Walnut Street to Main, through downtown and ends at City Hall.
Admission to Applefest is free for residents of 64098 zip code, and $1 donation for non residents 15 and older.
West Platte Students to Host Fields of Faith event October 14
A mass vaccination drill dubbed “Flulapalooza” and orchestrated by Platte County Health Department’s Division of Emergency Preparedness, will be held Monday, October 12. Free flu vaccines will be given to Platte County residents over the age of 18 until supplies run out.
Although the official goal of the event is to test the Health Department’s emergency mass vaccination plan as if there really were a pandemic, organizers of the event have a second goal —getting as many Platte County citizens as possible vaccinated for the flu virus.
The event, to be held at the Platte City Middle School, rain or shine, will begin at 10 a.m. and end at 2 p.m. The entrance to “Flulapalooza” will be from 92 Hwy, staff and volunteers will be directing the flow of traffic.
