Enjoy some bluegrass music, a pancake breakfast, flea market treasures and a poultry swap at the Lighthouse Community Hall this Sunday, the last All at the Hall event before the big bluegrass festival takes place next month at the same location.

All at the Hall happens once a month on the second Sunday of the month, beginning with a full breakfast for $5 between 8 a.m. and noon. The poultry swap, which also includes vegetables and small animals, goes from 10 a.m. to noon in the parking lot. A Dove release takes place here at 11 a.m.

Live music goes from 10 a.m. to noon inside, where open mic performances also take place. A bluegrass jam runs from noon until 2 p.m.

The first annual Lighthouse Bluegrass Festival will take place July 1, 2 and 3 at the hall, with eight bands traveling in from places like Colorado, Ontario and Vancouver. The weekend will have camping, parking lot picking, contests, raffles and workshops including one by bluegrass legend Pete Wernick or “Dr. Banjo.”
