Rockford to host 6th annual Fun Days
By Mitchell Hanson
It’s now Rockford’s turn in the great summer line-up of community festivals. In the tradition of Greene River Days and Nashua’s Water Over the Dam Days comes the sixth annual Rockford Fun Days, to be held this Saturday, July 26.
The fun will begin at 7:30 a.m. with the P3 P.E.O. Pace Prediction 5K Run/Walk. The race will begin at West Park, then follow a course through the Rockford streets before circling back around, concluding at the West Park. Cash prizes will be awarded to the top five finishers closest to the predicted race time — but this means that no personal timing devices are allowed.
Next up is a team slowpitch softball tournament at 9 a.m. Participants for the Car and Bike Show may begin registering at 9 a.m. as well; registration will continue until 10:30 a.m. Contact Bobbi or Chad Hinrichsen for details at 641-756-2292 or 641-430-3383 to register.
