Fun for the whole family at 1860 Days Aug. 5-7
Who’s good at Pie-Eating? Got a talent for creating the culinary masterpiece using berries or cherries? How about slinging buckets of water? Then, we are looking for you!
Pierce 1860 Days will be chock-full of awesome games and contests, guaranteed to get everyone involved. Just check this list out: Berry/Cherry Bake-Off - Bring your bestest, most beautiful treat to the contest Friday, August 5, and you might just win some cool cash.
On Saturday, bet on a Duck in the Ducky Derby (sponsored by the Timberline Girls’ Basketball Team), and watch your duck float to victory (cash involved here, too).
The Studio 205 Stick-Horse Roundup gives kids a chance at a variety of ‘horsey’ talents, all on Main Street, for coveted ribbons.
Have a knack for Dutch oven cooking? Sign up at The Outback to show off your finest Dutch oven accomplishments for bragging rights and cash prizes.
All the while on Main Street, there are many fun contests to join and stay cool! Pierce Hardware hosts the Ping Pong Ball Drop, a long-time 1860 Days tradition, all kids are welcome, with prizes galore.
Have you ever, ever, experienced our amazing Water Balloon Toss, complete without many rules, just the last duo to have their water balloon intact! Really, this has to be enjoyed on a hot afternoon.
Last, on Saturday, is another wet one. Gather up your team of six and sign up for the Bucket Brigade Contest - team of six; 2 over 21, two under 12, and two of any age…race to fill an empty barrel with puny one-gallon buckets. The best thing is the spilling!
Sunday might seem like a slow day (starts off that way), and then it all amps up after 1 p. m! How ‘bout the old fashioned Kids’ Sack Race, Three-Legged Race, and the now famous Pie-Eating contest, for Kids and Adult Kids. This should not be missed. Oh, and yes, another rousing Water Balloon Toss!
Don’t miss the fun; please pick up one of our 1860 Days programs, available almost everywhere. The schedule of events is posted on pierce-weippechamber.com, along with parade and vendor forms. The schedule can also be seen on windowontheclearwater.com.
There is much more, so read the next chapter next week! See you in Pierce Aug. 5-7!
