While small, subtle nods to the milestone will occur throughout 2019, mark your calendars for August 17-24, 2019! The Walldogs are scheduled to return to Vinton during this week to give our mural history a fresh coat of paint and add new murals as well. Other activities will include a parade, musical performances – both small and large, a tasty reminder of Sweet Corn Days and several other events you won’t want to miss. We hope to release a full schedule of events early in 2019.
Check out details of our mural plans by viewing the Mural Presentation.

The 2019 Sesquicentennial Committee is partnering with the Benton County Historical Society to gather information on the last 150 years of Vinton’s history! We are looking for photos and stories on the following topics: Vinton businesses, baseball in Vinton, the Benton County Fair, Sweet Corn Days and passenger train service to Vinton.
Information gathered may be used in a new Historical Society publication, used as reference material for the Walldogs in creation of a new mural or other celebration related activities.
September 18, October 16 and November 13th from 6:30pm to 8:00pm (open house format) in the 2019 Headquarters (303 1st Ave – Governor Sherman Building).
