The schedule for Hope’s annual Heritage Festival is so full of fun things, I’m not sure they could possibly fit anything else on it! This year’s theme is “Hope, a Family Tradition” and I love the addition of the “Gallery of Hope’s Family History” that will be displayed in the Catholic Hall.
The Chamber will be there, as usual, hosting the Turtle Races. Participants need to bring their own turtles and they must be clean of any paint or decoration. Check in time starts at 9 am and nontoxic paints will be provided to decorate your racers. We’ll be doing qualifying heats at 10 am and 11 am and the winners from those races will come back and race in the final at 12 pm! It’s always lots of fun!
Brian Haden is hoping for a record turnout at the Car Show this year and the Pin Up contest has a new coordinator this year and I’m sure that Dani Heels will be bringing new aspects to this crowd favorite!
Between the 3 on 3 Basketball Tourney, the Rock Paper Scissors Tourney, the parade, the vendors, kids games, the amazing life sized games that Brian made, the 5k, carriage rides, banana cycles, all the food, and so much more; it’s bound to be a great day!
Then to top off an already great day, the locals favorite Clearview Band will be playing that evening!
Let’s all come out and show the Hope Community Project Committee how much we appreciate all their hard work.
The Chamber’s fall Quarter Mania event is getting bigger every day. Our local Subway has jumped in on the fun and will have valuable coupons for everyone who attends. Our list of vendors is growing to include Scentsy, Origami Owl, the ladies of Beta Sigma Phi (Xi Gamma Epsilon chapter), It Works, and Pink Zebra. It’s going to be a great event so be sure and put September 20 on your calendar.
