WELCOME
to the 2013
Pekin Marigold Festival!
I
am part of a generation that has
never known Pekin without the
Marigold Festival, and it’s been as
much a part of my experience growing
up here as the schools I’ve attended
and the houses I’ve lived in.
I remember watching the Miss
Marigold pageant with wide eyes as a
young girl, and handling calls to our
house from hunters eager for an extra
clue to find the medallion my dad had
hidden. Watching the parade, meeting
my grandparents at the pork chop
tent, shopping at Art in the Park with
my mom - all of these are traditions
that have morphed into memories
over the years.
I believe the weekend after Labor Day is
a time when our community shines its
brightest, with a display of unmatched
civic pride and community spirit
and fellowship. It is a weekend for
reunions, supporting local charities,
and just having fun.
Serving as Chairman of this year’s
festival has been an honor that I can’t
put into words. The Marigold Festival
committee is a group of dedicated and
talented people whom I am privileged
to know.
But as the committee, we simply put
the framework in place. The most
important part of our festival is the
people - the people who volunteer
their time to staff booths or oversee
events or sell food and the people who
come out to enjoy all there is to see
and do.
So whether you live here in Pekin, or
if you have moved elsewhere and are
visiting this weekend - or maybe if
this is even your first visit to our city,
I say “Welcome to our home,” and I
hope you enjoy everything the Pekin
Marigold Festival has to offer.

Pekin Marigold
Festival History
I
n 1972, a group of Pekin residents gathered to investigate the possibility of a local festival. In
their discussions, they decided it would be a way to honor Pekin’s favorite son, Senator Everett
McKinley Dirksen. Throughout his life Senator Dirksen was an avid gardener and enjoyed spending
time in his garden. David Burpee, owner of the Burpee Seed Company, learned of Dirksen’s strong
appreciation for gardening. He contacted Dirksen on numerous occasions, encouraging him to
introduce legislation that would name the Marigold the official floral emblem of the United States.
Unfortunately, Dirksen’s efforts were unsuccessful. But until his death, the Marigold held a special
place in his heart.
What better way for the people of Pekin to remember Senator Dirksen than to name their festival
after something so close to his heart, his beloved flower, the Marigold. The first festival was held
in 1973, and now, young and old look forward to our 40th festival. With events and fun throughout
Pekin over a span of several days, it is unlikely Everett Dirksen or the members of the original
Marigold Festival Committee could have imagined what a fantastic event the Marigold Festival
would eventually become!

“ A Community Obsession”
GRAND PRIZE:
2013 Medallion designed by Miranda Decker
Art student and 2013 Graduate of PCHS
WINNER’S CHOICE
3 Night Caribbean
Cruise for Two
OR
3 Night Las Vegas
Vacation for Two
Every year at the end of August, Pekin’s
amateur detectives and determined sleuths
prepare for the Pepsi Marigold Medallion
Hunt. They pit their interpretive skills with
the Medallion Hunt Cluemeister who has
carefully hidden the small disc somewhere
on public property and then releases “clues”
on a daily basis. The clues carry doublemeaning, veiled references, and carefully
disguised hints all designed to bring out the
CLUE UPDATES
346-HUNT
“DaVinci Code” enthusiast in all of us. Families, friends, co-workers and even neighborhoods collaborate in an attempt to discover
the Medallion’s hidden location. The finder
will discover that a very nice prize - often a
nice trip for two awaits them courtesy of our
generous friends at Pepsi. But, as history has
shown, it is the excitement of being the one
person who “has figured it all out” that often represents the greatest prize of all.
“Thank you, Pepsi, for 26 years of support!”
GOOD LUCK
The Hunt always commences
the Monday before Labor
Day. Clues are released
Monday through Saturday,
giving hunters the rest of the
holiday weekend to make
their finding. If not discovered by Labor Day, clues
will continue being released
daily beginning Tuesday after
Labor Day. Remember that
the Medallion will be found
on PUBLIC PROPERTY
- whether within or contiguous to city boundaries, or
owned by Pekin Public body.
Hunters do not need to dig
up or climb up to find the
Medallion. It may be carefully camouflaged or hidden
within something easily
accessible and not requiring
disassembly. The chosen hiding place is always selected
with safety and accessibility
given the highest consideration. Please see the Pekin
Area Chamber of Commerce
for further disclaimers.

Loose Shoes is a VARIETY band from Pekin. The band started as the brain child of
Dr. Eric Reinertson a local Obstetrician/Gynecologist. Originally, a smaller group
of musicians were assembled to “jam” once a month or so with some classic
rock tunes and eventually play for the office Christmas party. Over the course of
a couple of years several musicians joined the band from various connections.
Some have come and gone and the mix now includes about two or more of
everything; singers, keyboards, trumpets, guitars, saxes, trombones, etc. It is hard
to say how many people actually are in the band as it keeps growing and we
have up to 16 full and part-time members. All of the Loose Shoes members either
work or go to school full time in the Pekin area. THREE of the members are local
physicians, which occasionally gives rise to the name “The Doctors’ Band”. This
band has a strong rhythm section that is accented by a full brass combo and
several exceptional vocalists. CLASSIC ROCK Covers and songs from the 1940’s
to current hits are the predominant presentation material. This is a band you will
simply enjoy watching and listening to on a relaxing afternoon in the park.

Straight from Nashville, Tennessee, “the august” is a force to be reckoned with; an eclectic
mix of country meets the windy city. Jacky Dustin is where country should be at with her
Tammy Wynette meets Tina Turner twang soul vocals; she is original and should be the
voice of Country today. Originally from Chicago, Jacky, Tim Good and Wojtek Krupka moved
to Music City in 2009, where they met up with Cameron Clarke. Hence the name of their
most recent album, “Dear Chicago, Love Nashville.” That CD, as well as their two others
can be found on iTunes and other online stores. “the august” brings a little Funk, Blues and
Rock and Roll to this tight small band. Jacky is not an auto-tuned twangster; she is the real
deal with incredible strength, presence and drive. Not to be outdone, Krupka, principle cowriter with influences like Neil Young and Tom Petty, plays an important role in “the august”
sound. “the august” has shared the stage with a variety of great musicians, including Toby
Keith, Lionel Richie, Leon Russell, and The Drive-By Truckers. “Listening to the august is like
listening to old Johnny Cash tunes on modern radio: The sound is nostalgic-country complete
with its own special twang.” – Chicago Daily Herald. (Visit their website to get a taste of their
music and style at theaugust.com/wordpress/epk or www.reverbnation.com/theaugust)

“I’ve decided to be a dull, morose bore at
these press meetings. It’s the only safe course.
You give me no choice. I tell a joke and you
convert it into an international incident. I coin
a whimsical term and you make it appear I am
at odds with the President. I indulge in some
polite banter and you interpret it as a split in
the Party.”
