De Holt, Tom Benton, Nancy Nehl and Jeri Yegger name businesses in Cheyenne County to win their second round of Family Feud at last year's Dalton Fall Festival. Their attire is representative of their Muzzleloader Club, which is the oldest in the state of Nebraska. 

While the temperatures may feel more like summer, the 2014 Dalton Fall Festival is scheduled for this weekend. Events and activities will be available for people of all ages.

Things kick off today with Leyton High School volleyball and football games against visiting Wallace.

The festival will be in full swing on Saturday with such things as a craft fair, car show, a tractor pull, bingo, a BBQ and a silent auction. The Nebraska-Miami football game will be televised at the Legion beginning at 6 p.m., with stadium-style food available.

The night will be capped off with a dance from 9:30 p.m.-midnight at Big V's. Food vendors, games and karaoke will also be available throughout the day.

On Sunday, a pancake feed to benefit the Boy Scouts will be held after church services. The afternoon will be highlighted by the annual Family Feud game, pitting as many as 12 families against each other. A "Dalton Walks as One" cancer walk will start at 3 p.m. at the high school.

The weekend will be capped off with the Cheyenne County Community Band at 4 p.m. and then the Dalton VFD benefit feed an hour later.

Dalton is located 20 miles north of Sidney on Highway 385. For more information, visit
