Back after a three-year hiatus due to COVID, Denzil Community Days returns will a fun filled weekend of small-town action.
Included on the list is a wiener roast at the Denzil Park, which begins at 6:30 tonight. Then a full day of action is ahead tomorrow, as Greg Rissling, who helped get the event ready, explains.
“We are going to have pedal tractor races for the little kids with prizes and then we have the female Octagon races are going to go around pylons and stuff. Then we have the tractor pull and we have a big supper for all the pullers, we got door prizes for them,” Rissling told West Central Online.
The action continues on Sunday, with another day of fun scheduled.
“We're going to have a parade on Sunday and then we'll finish the pulls and then there'll be presentations for all the different classes. And this year is something special, we have a huge trophy, that's a memorial trophy for Don Clark. He always used to bring 13 tractors and he would really support all the places that have tractor pulls. He was such a good man, so I thought it would be fitting we would do something in memory of him,” Rissling added.
He also is looking forward to being able to host the event once again.
“It'll be a busy two days. We're going to put up a big tent, 40 by 80, and we're going to put picnic tables under it so nobody sits out in the sun. We have got an announcer to talk about all the people that come in their tractors. We also got guaranteed $500.00 each day in a 50/50 draw, so that should be good, and we serve some of the best burgers here, so it's going to be lots of fun for everybody,” Rissling said.
Expect some pictures of the pull, and a follow-up from the event, early next week.
