Magnolia prepares for mushroom hunt
May 02, 2005 newstrib.com

On May 6 and May 7, a couple thousand people will pour into the small town of Magnolia for the 10th annual Illinois State Morel Mushroom Hunting Championship and Spongy Fungi Festival.

The mushroom-hunting championship was created by Magnolia residents Tom and Vicky Nauman, who grew up hunting mushrooms. The event this year is co-hosted by Morel Mania Inc., the company formed by the Naumans, and the village of Magnolia.

Tootie Mercer, one of the festival's committee members, said many of the festival's crowd-pleasing activities will be back, including the petting zoo, the craft show, the wall climb, surrey rides and chainsaw carving demonstration.

To learn more about the mushroom hunt, visit www.morelmania.com or call (309) 364-3319.

For more information about the festival, call (815) 869-7051
