June Jubilee is back in Wadena and today kicks off this yearly summer fun get-together.
A time when friends family and local community get together to enjoy what Wadena and the surrounding area has to offer. So if you’re already hearing from your kids…”there’s nothing to do…we’re bored” why not come into Wadena and check out these awesome events.
The celebration starts at Auto Value where the staff are hosting an open house lunch from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. At 4:30, head over to the Wadena VFW for a Steak Fry. Then finally at 7 p.m. the evening ends with the Grand Parade.
On Friday, start the day right with the Town & Country Breakfast at 7:30-10 a.m. The breakfast will take place at Burlington Northern Park. At 9-11 a.m. kids can check out the town’s emergency vehicle arsenal at the Hoot & Toot, located at Super One parking lot. Additionally, carriage rides, fry bread, history interpreters, and games for children will be at the Wadena County Museum. Finish out the day with a hard sweat at the Sunnybrook Stomp. Registration is at 5:30 pm with the race taking place at 6:30 p.m. Adult fee is $20, kids under 12 are $15, and the 1k for kids 10 and under is free. All proceeds from the Sunnybrook Stomp go toward the Tri-County Health Care pediatric rehab program.
Saturday is Family Fun Day with the majority of activities taking place at Sunnybrook Park. At 9-10 a.m. the Joe Rousslang Youth Breakfast will be at Sunnybrook Park. Kids eat for free. This year organizers decided to name the breakfast after Rousslang because of his years of dedicated service to the event and VFW. From 9-4 p.m. crafts, a kids tractor pull, and minnow races will also be held at Sunnybrook park. Stop by from 10 a.m. to noon for the George Ditsworth Youth Fishing Derby at Sunnybrook Park. At the Wadena fairgrounds the Band “High Octane” will be performing to finish off the June Jubilee celebration.
Let the June Jubilee fun begin!
