The Heritage Days Committee is in the final stretch of planning for the 12th annual event held in Riverside Park. New this year is Knockerball, which are inflatable wearable balls that allow people to slam into each other. People wear them to play games that include knocker soccer, last man standing, and musical chairs.
Heritage Days will also feature the inflatable rides that attract kids each year. The committee still needs volunteers to help with the rides. They need to cover five rides for nine hours. Yes, the company can provide this service - with a cost. Committee Chair Jean Carr estimates this cost to be between $2,000 and $3,000.
Organizers are also looking for non-profit groups to sell concessions during the movie on Friday night (July 5). All they ask is that a portion of the proceeds be donated back to the committee.
Heritage Days Committee will meet every Tuesday at 6 pm in the Chamber’s conference room. All are welcome to attend.
