The day starts off with the One Mile Fun Run and 5K Run at 8 AM, with registration from 6:30-7:30 AM. As soon as you’re done walking, running, or cheering on the participants, head on to the Pancake Breakfast.
From 8:30-10 AM, local volunteers cook up delicious pancakes and sausages, served with juice or coffee. The Pancake Breakfast is free for all walk/run participants, or $6 per person.
The Standley Marching Band will lead the way at 10:30 AM for the Bike/Pet Parade that always brings a smile to everyone’s faces.
Noon through 4 PM is when all the rest of the action takes place: entertainment, games, food and vendor booths, Book Barn, and the popular beer garden. Kids will enjoy games all day, including a Rock Wall, Slug-a-Thon, Dunk Tank, and Inflatables.
Make sure to be around for the Cannon Ball Contest at 2 PM. Kids and parents alike can participate in Family Field games throughout the day, and the Photo Scavenger Hunt beginning at noon (register starting at 10:30 AM).
Music and entertainment is scheduled throughout the day, including the Polynesian Dances from 12-1 PM. For evening entertainment, the band “Y3K” performs from 5 – 7 PM.
Leave your car at home! Trolley pick-up and drop-off points will be located along Governor Drive form 11 AM to 7:30 PM.
