YORK — Two days of Yorkfest 2019 “Back to the Future” is in the books, but the fun has just begun.

Standby community favorites like Yorkfest Coronation, Family Fun Night and Hospital Bed Races were held Thursday evening, with Friday’s Royalty Brunch giving Yorkfest Kings and Queens of years past and present a chance to reminisce.

A new amenity this year is a tent for nursing mothers, provided by York General in collaboration with Milk Works and the Breastfeeding for Health Coalition – Butler, Polk, Seward and York Counties. The Nursing Tent – a clean, comfortable space for moms – will be located on the lawn outside the firehouse.
