Audubon Days

On June 11, Audubon will be bubbling over with activity.

Anyone in the mood for brats, a parade, ice cream, classic cars or a hayride is encouraged to join in the fun, too.

The day will be packed with things to eat, se and do including First Lutheran Church's Sweet Shoppe bake sale, Crazy Day at Audubon Meats, and Auroch's vet shop will be sponsoring a pet parade.

There will also be free hayrides, music and chainsaw carving demonstrations.

There will be a classic car show, with trophies awarded. Sign up at the Audubon Liquor Store to participate.

Audubon Meats will have brats and pop for $1.25. There will be other meat specials as well.

The Audubon First Lutheran Church's Sweet Shoppe will include slices of pie, ice cream, penny candy, beverages and baked goods from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.

And for the kids, the Pet Parade will have judging in several categories including Best Costume: you and your pet dress up; Best Trick: is your pet the smartest; Most Unusual: do you have a pet no one else has; Plush Pals: stuffed animal with the best story; Largest Pet: just what it says, judged by overall size.

Be as creative as possible. Use wagons, bikes, balloons, pictures, streamers and much more. Also, be sure that you bring water for your pets to drink and leashes or cages to keep them controlled. A parent or guardian must be present.

Entry and judging will be on the west side of the Lake Park-Audubon Elementary School in the Country Wood Products parking lot.

All entrants will receive a treat for their participation. There will be a 1st, 2nd and 3rd for all categories. All 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners will receive more prizes.

Entry is from 9 to 11 a.m. Judging will begin at 11. All participants will receive their ribbons prior to the parade, which starts at noon.
