Surface Creek Valley Lions Club is inviting everyone in the area to participate in Little Britches Rodeo weekend.
As sponsors of the annual parade, Lions Club members are looking forward to a bigger and better event this year.
The club notes that the parade has not had too many participating in the past few years, so this year there will be the Shriners with their small cars, clowns, horses, antique vehicles, and children on their wooden painted horses.
Several floats are anticipated, club members report.
There is still time to enter the parade, Lions Club members say. If anyone wants to participate in the parade, they may pick up a registration form and turn it in to the Cedaredge Chamber of Commerce located on Main Street. Registration forms can be picked up at Cedaredge Food Town and at the chamber of commerce office.
Lineup for the parade will be in the parking area just west of the elementary school on NW Cedar Street. Lineup will start at 11:30 a.m., and the parade will kick off at noon at NW Cedar and NW 5th Street. There will be someone from the Lions Club there to assist in the lineup.
The Lions will be busy before the parade, too, getting ready for their big cookout event in Town Park. Members will be preparing jumbo hot dogs and bratwurst for the annual meal. These hot dogs and brats will be served with potato chips and iced tea or lemonade. Members will be serving food from 11:30 until 2:00 p.m. or until supplies run out, so don’t be late.
Prices are $4.50 for jumbo dogs and .$5.50 for the Johnsonville Brats.
Also, there are usually non-profit organization who set up a booth and sell their goods during the cookout. Organizations desiring a free space should call Bill Miller at 856-6153. No other food products other than the Lions Club fundraiser cookout will be permitted without permission.
Everyone is reminded to be sure and pick up a fist full of raffle tickets from the club members who will be selling them to raise funds that benefit the community all year long.
Finally, there will be a street dance on main Street from 7 to 10 p.m. featuring the Ghost River Band. Admission is free.
