Craft vendors, a face painter, a balloon artist, live music and food will also be part of the festivities. On Sept. 15, Union Pacific will be awarding the City of Colfax the Golden Spike Award for its part in the 150-year anniversary of the completion of the Transcontinental Railroad. Sunday will include a car and motorcycle "show and shine." This is open to any make or model year and there is no fee to participate.
