A pancake breakfast at the Main Street Fire Hall starts off the event's opening day.

Other events include:

  • EPB Southside Parade
  • The Mutt Strutt  
  • The DeMoss Capital Chili Cook-Off
  • Fashion Show
  • Busking Competition
  • The Main Event at Track29 featuring the Dirty Guv'nahs


New events such as the Stroller Strut and Adult Big Wheel Race add even more options for participation.
