Their biggest venture is the 40 acre ball park that they maintain for all sorts of fun events. Family or other reunions, sports practices and games, midget quarter races, non-profit events, walk path and playgrounds for the children.
The Labor Day Festival is their biggest community 3-day event filled with all sorts of fun things to do, to see and delicious food to eat. This year they held their 51st festival and the parade was the big kickoff. If you had any doubt that West Liberty and surrounding area of being a farm community you wouldn't after seeing the “Tractor Parade.” Our farm families, several generations strong, proudly show off their tractors of all ages and colors and line the parade route interspersed with community floats, sports teams and our great WL-S High School Band. We are proud of our fire and police departments who led the way.
Antique Equipment Show, gas engines, sawmill and tractors are displayed on the grounds. The children's tractor pull, bingo, antique tractor pull, duck races, softball games, lawn mower/go cart races and a favorite, Willie Yoder's tug of war over the Mad River. Church service, great entertainment, Chicken BBQ and other delicious food, flea market and craft vendors. Something for everyone and a good time was had by all!
