The theme has been set for this year’s Cleveland Days Celebration, Back for More Fun and that is exactly what the town plans to have is lots of fun. The celebration will run from Thursday, July 22 through Saturday, July 24. Event Representative, Brydi Sharp stopped by Castle Country Radio to talk about all the details.
There will be a trap shoot held at 4:00 pm on Thursday, July 22. “The location has been changed to the Shooting Range south of Cleveland heading out towards the desert,” said Sharp. This was going to be held on Sherrel Wards’s Farm but the location had to be changed the last minute. Also taking place this evening is a free hot dog dinner with live entertainment. The dinner is a pot-luck so be sure to bring a side to share with everyone. There will be a BB gun shoot for children around 6:30 pm followed by Stick Horse Show at 7:30 pm. The night will close out with a movie in the park at 9:00 pm.
Friday activities kick off at noon and it’s all about the kids. “12:00 pm to 2:00 pm at Main Street Park, it’s $2.00, you’ll get a card, that’ll give you a pass to all the games that are being played, pizza, water bottles, all kinds of fun from 12:00 pm to 2:00 pm at Main Street Park,” said Sharp. The one-time fee of $2.00 allows for kids to enjoy all the activities planned for them in the park for the afternoon. At 5:00 pm there will be bike races at the south flat loop race.
