Phantom Festival to be held July 10

The Phantom Funeral is one of many fascinating stories out of Prairie du Rocher’s nearly 300 year history. Those not familiar with the story are welcome to come check it out at the village’s Phantom Festival to be held on July 10.

The day will kick off with a 5K run/fun run at 8 a.m. To register for the 5K, visit

Then, from 2 to 6 p.m., there will be a variety of activities around town. A trolley will be available throughout the day to take festival goers to the various locations so that they can enjoy live music, jukebox bingo, storytelling, shopping, food and more.
