Served by the Young Men from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, a delicious breakfast of pancakes, eggs, bacon and orange juice.

10:00 AM - Parade

Join us for our patriotic parade, themed “Freedom Is...”. Watch as floats and community groups parade down Highway 24 from Stan's Burger Shak to the The Church of Jesus Christ. Don’t forget to wear your red, white, and blue!

As the evening cools down, enjoy a game of horseshoes and live music. It’s a great way to relax and enjoy the community spirit. We are trying something new this year, the horseshoe games will be played inside the arena under the lights. While the kids play, let's visit and enjoy the music.
