Is Grey Eagle's GEMFEST going to the dogs. No, but at least one pouch wanted to get in on the fun. GEMFEST was held this year on July 22, 23, and 24. Bolts of lightening and the rumble of thunder kicked off the event much to the dismay of all the cyclists riding in the Annual Grey Eagle Classic bike tour. It was canceled. But the combination of volleyball, softball, bike tour, parade, tractor pull, dance and fireworks drew the crowds. There is something for everyone.
