Our annual citywide celebration began in 1981 as a two-day event. Activities in Island Park included horseshoe pitching, canoe races, and a flea market.
Today, the events begin mid-week with a taco supper, “Thanks with Franks” hot dog supper, waffle breakfast, parade, street dance, & numerous activities in Island Park. Various events throughout the week include a road race, all-school reunion, car show, inflatable’s, downtown business sales & a burn out contest. The festivities wrap up on Sunday with an outdoor community wide church service.
Other events put on by the community include the United Methodist Women’s Salad Luncheon, Premier Bank Fast Pitch Softball Tournament, Figure 8 Races at Rapid Speedway, River Valley Players Musical Review, etc.
Mark your calendars for Heritage Days 40th Anniversary June 2020.
