Geocaching is back along with the Poker Run, Whiffle Ball Tournament, Lip Synching, and Dominos Fall. And yes, the Demolition Derby returns after a one year hiatus. Geocaching rules and locations will be posted the morning of Thursday, June 27, 2013.
The 50/50 sellers will be all around town and our 50/50 tent will once again be set up in the BP gas station parking lot. Last year's prize was an amazing $23,253!
The GIANT 4th of July parade starts at 7 pm with the F16 flyover prior to the start of the parade. The last parade float will show the winning 50/50 number.
