Parade marks milestones

After the parade, the field day celebration will be held on the Holy Name Church/School grounds. One of Santa's famous reindeer, Blitzen, will be located on the grounds near the Moon Bounce. HooDeeDoo and Trillium will also be performing for an hour after the parade on the field grounds.

Plenty of traditional fare will be included, such as chicken BBQ dinners, hot dogs, hamburgers, fried bread dough, french fries, snow cones, popcorn, cotton candy, and refreshments. Bingo starts at 2 p.m., with doors opening at noon.

There will be six new games of skill on the field grounds this year; the $1 bounce, milk jug, frisbee toss, ringer, and ready-go-throw. Returning once again will be the dunking booth and the chance to win a fresh baked pie.

Band entertainment will be provided by Side by Side Entertainment on the field grounds from 1 - 5 p.m.

The field day grounds are open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and closes with a large cash raffle drawing. First prize is $5,000, $1,000 for second, $300 for third, $200 for fourth, and $100 for fifth.

Douglas said that the event encourages many in the community to hold family reunions or get-togethers with friends.

"It's just a great end-of-summer event for the community," Douglas said.
