Gaylord, this is our weekend to celebrate us! Let’s rally and enjoy all that we have, and celebrate all that we can be! EGG-actly right here….in Gaylord is the place to be this weekend!
THURSDAY NIGHT KICK-OFF
Our celebration begins at the ever-cool Gaylord Pool this Thursday night starting at 7 p.m. for the poolside show! This year’s poolside show theme is: Welcome to Gaylord…the Land of 10,000 Jocks! We are incorporating the Meet the Miss Gaylord Candidates into our show. So, you will get to see two events rolled into one! Come and watch all the fun! Because of the pool side show, our pool closes for the day at 4 p.m. on Thursday, August 6th. From 8 to 1 p.m. on this day, we will also be doing last minute practices for all those groups who are performing in our show!
Take advantage of the food vendors in the park just for our show on Thursday night. The Forever Young group will be selling rootbeer floats and the Gaylord Sertoma club will be serving their mouthwatering tacos over in Walsh Field! We can’t wait to go on another “taco run” like we did last week over to the Sibley County Fair!
Friday morning, there will not be early riser class at our pool! Bummer. Huh? But we are going to be uptown at the EGG-ceptional Breakfast at the Legion. Join us there! Get your button and wear it! It will get you a free breakfast that is great tasting! The omelets and accompanying spread put on by Michael Foods are wonderful!
Our pool’s schedule for Friday will be: Afternoon open swim 1-4 p.m.; ProGrowth Panda party 4-6 p.m.; 6 p.m. closed for the night.
(Join us all uptown for the street dance and the opening of the TIME CAPSULE in Neisen’s Parking lot!)
Rise and shine and join us early on Saturday morning for our Sunny-side Up 5K Walk/Run for Fitness and Fun! All participants must fill out a registration form starting at 7:30 a.m. on Saturday morning. The registration fee for the race is $ 10. This will get you a race shirt to wear! Only 50 shirts are available so, register early to insure yourself a shirt!
After the parade we will be hosting a two hour only “Post Parade Pool Party.” We will open our doors at 3 p.m. and close promptly at 5 p.m. in order to be able to get up to the Junior High for the start of the 6 p.m. Miss Gaylord Queen Coronation!
WHERE ARE THEY?
The golden egg has been hidden and hidden well! But you will be able to find all 12 eggs if you just do a little serious thinking about our clues! Clue #1 is in the Hub this week. Clue #2 will be given out at the close of the poolside show on Thursday night. Clue #3 will be given out at 5:15 p.m. on Friday out at the Fire Hall during the Fire Fighters Chicken Dinner. All clues to date will be read at the Friday night Street Dance later on this evening. The 4th clue (if needed) will be given out at 9:30 a.m. at the pool on Saturday morning right at the conclusion of the Fitness Walk.
Let the search begin! If you find an egg, bring it to the ever-cool Gaylord Pool and claim your prize! Join the fun this weekend! Let the good times roll…Gaylord Style!
