Every once in a while one of the local news stories from our area will be picked up by national television, radio or newspaper outlets. Sometimes the stories are horrible, other times they're just fun. Here are a few local news stories that made national headlines.
The very first Big River Steampunk Festival was held in Hannibal on Labor Day Weekend in 2014. The event draw participants from around the region (in fact, even a few from several states away!) as well as curious onlookers who stopped in to find out what Steampunk was all about. After its successful debut, organizers quickly went to work on planning the next Big River Steampunk Festival.
Did you know there is a National Hamburger Day? That shouldn't be confused with National Cheeseburger Day. There's one of those, too. National Hamburger Day is in May (during National Hamburger Month), and National Cheeseburger Day is in September. I'm not sure exactly how National Hamburger/Cheeseburger Day is officially celebrated, but it's probably safe to assume that the day is marked by ordering a favorite burger from a favorite restaurant. Where would you order from?
Memorial Day Weekend in Hannibal will be fun. Twain on Main will be taking place downtown May 23-May 24, and even though the regular season for the Hannibal Cavemen does not officially begin until May 27, the team has announced a special exhibition game at Clemens Field on Memorial Day.
Memorial Day, the 'unofficial start of summer,' will be on Monday, May 25. Memorial Day Weekend is always packed full of activities and events all around the area. Here is our 2015 Memorial Day Weekend activity guide for the Quincy/Hannibal area.
