Ironmaster Days set for this weekend
Published 12:00 am Tuesday, June 22, 2004
Ironton area residents will pay homage this weekend to the people who founded the city, and to its industrial roots with the annual Ironmaster Days.
The event is sponsored by the Ironton Business Association. IBA President Pat Murphy said the festival will include a Kids Day Circus.
"We've never had this before," Murphy said.

The circus will be Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
Another change this year is festival organizers are asking people to bring something to sit in when they come for the concerts and other stage activities.
"We would like people to bring their own lawn chairs," said IBA Vice President Rich Patrick. "Last year we provided chairs, but it's an expense and most people have chairs they can bring."
The festival begins Thursday with a flower show at noon. Craft and food booths open at 5 p.m. with live music on stage at 6:30 p.m. The antique tractor and engine show is Friday at 6 p.m.
On Saturday there will be a flea market and the annual Ironmaster recipient will be honored as well. On Sunday, an open church service will begin the final day's festivities. A motorcycle and car show will complete the event.
