MARKLEVILLE — Markleville Music Night — a one-night event planned after the town’s annual two-day jamboree was nixed because of COVID-19 — attracted hundreds of visitors to Community Park on Friday.

“I think it was a success — we had a really good turnout,” organizer Dianna Driver Smith said. “I’d say at least 300 (people) were there at one time,” at the peak.

Attractions included a tractor show, police and firefighter softball game and live music performances, as well as food vendors Fat John’s Walleye Wagon and Greek’s Pizza.

The food is so popular, Driver Smith said, that some people came just to pick up dinner.

Firefighters defeated the police 12-10 during the softball game.
