Located along Hwy. 63, just five miles south of the Minnesota border, Lime Springs is the Best Town by a Dam Site! If you’ve never been to Lime Springs or if you are an old friend, plan to visit in 2018 as the town prepares for its Sesquicentennial (that’s 150th!) Celebration. Held during Sweet Corn Days, the usual three-day festival has been extended to four days to allow time for all the fun activities planned, August 9-12. The tried and true events will still take place, such as the Friday and Saturday night FREE street dances (plus another on Thursday). Don’t forget FREE sweet corn and watermelon on Sunday.
If you can’t make if for the big celebration, there is still plenty to enjoy on any given Sunday, or Saturday or weekday! During the summer, the municipal pool is open seven days a week, with the ball park, volleyball park and playground adjacent.
One mile north is an outdoor dream, with the updated Lidtke Park and all its amenities, the Upper Iowa River for fishing and other water fun, and on weekends a person can tour Lidtke Mill, the most authentic old-time mill around.
Come for a day, or stay for a lifetime in Lime Springs.
