About the Lawn Party

FREE ENTRY and all ages are welcome. Gates open at 11am – before the race starts, you can get the best seat in the house. Once the race starts, attendees will need to cross the race track in order to get to the Lawn Party. Come to the corner of W Church St & N Court St, and a crossing guard will be there to assist. The event entrance will be at 101 N Court St under the bright blue tent.

We will have some bistro tables and chairs around the lawn, and feel free to bring your own comfy chair or a lawn blanket!

No outside food or beverages will be permitted – we will have free water and lots of local food and adult beverages for purchase.
