Summer fun isn’t over yet

The Stacy-Lent firefighters enjoy bringing the children into the action as they play waterball with area fire departments. It should be another fun time this year. File photo

Perhaps you had a chance to take a little breather from the fun and excitement of summertime community events.

Well, here comes round two.

This week it’s Stacy’s turn to present its annual celebration – Stacy Daze.

Running right now is the medallion hunt, unless someone has already found it. With a registered button you can take home a $500 prize. Hope you bought yours before the deadline.

Friday evening enjoy a classic car show at the fire hall, and softball tournaments at Rick Doyle Fields.

A pack of fun can be had Saturday starting with a pancake breakfast in the park. The softball tourney continues also.

At noon, enjoy a parade that gets bigger every year. It starts at St. John’s church and runs west to the park area where you will find pony rides and root beer floats: two of summer’s happiest activities.

Kids can enjoy a petting zoo and there are games, food and fun all around at the park.

Later the local firefighters will challenge their peers in a water ball fight. So if it’s hot, here’s great way to cool down.

There’ll be more fun and food in the park as evening comes on, live band until midnight and fireworks at 10 p.m.

Stacy Daze is sponsored by the Stacy Lions and the Stacy-Lent Fire Department.
