I must admit that I started this post out with the intentions of having a list of 5 things to check out at this year’s Town & Country Days 2017, except when I was coming up with my list… I couldn’t narrow it down to just 5 things. Therefore, my list of 5 things quickly became a list of 10 things.
Here is a list of 10 things to check out at “Pedal to the Metal” Town and Country Days 2017.
10. Franks A lot Night (Wednesday May 31st 5:30-7:30pm)
In the last few months, my kids have grown to love hot dogs. They refuse to eat certain items… but if you throw a hot dog with it, they will have it gone in record timing. So obviously this event is a must attend for my toddlers and I.
Every year, local businesses and organizations of the Jackson area grill up over 6,000 hot dogs to say “Frank-You Very Much” for supporting their businesses and organizations over the last year! There are a variety of toppings, so be sure to try a few and pick your favorite!
Special events, music, attractions, and a variety of other treats and beverages are also available and on hand for you to enjoy!
9.Track tours at the Motorplex (Wednesday 8:00-10:00PM)
Do your kids (or special other) ask you a continuous string of what’s that? Why are they doing that? Or many other questions throughout the Jackson races? Check out the track tours available at the Jackson Motorplex from 8-10pm following Frank-a-lot night.
8.World of Outlaws Races at Motorplex (Saturday hot laps at 6:30)
Whether it is your first race ever, first race of the day, or first week of the season. Join your family, friends and neighbors at the Jackson Motorplex for some great racing.
There are many fantastic opportunities to take in the races, but not all the races are followed up with #7.
7. Fireworks (Saturday after the races)
What a better way to celebrate the end of another school year ( or just a beautiful day) by taking in a great fireworks’ show.
6. The Amazing Race
Grab a friend or family member along with $10 (registration fee) and race through Jackson while solving clues and completing challenges.
5. Bingo (Saturday Afternoon)
*** Due to technical problems there will no longer be Lion’s bingo during this years Town & Country Day activities **
Have I mentioned lately that I LOVE BINGO.?!?! The Jackson’s lions will be hosting BINGO all afternoon in the Lion’s bingo building at the fairgrounds.
4. Bike Safety Event / Kiddie Parade Down Main street (Saturaday 9:30 AM-10:30 AM)
Growing up I LOVED participating in my hometown’s kiddie parade with family members and friends. As result, I am pretty excited to take my kids to Jackson’s Bike safety event & Kiddie Parade on Main street.
3.Parade (Saturday at 11am)
We LOVE parades. My kids love watching parades almost as much as they enjoy watching them.
* REMEMBER to Bring an item for the food shelf.
2. Free Movie Matinee (Saturday 2pm )
Historic State Theater of Jackson, will be showing the movie Cars for FREE at 2pm.
1.Kid Zone Under the Grand Stand at the Jackson Motorplex (Saturday Afternoon)
All Saturday afternoon under the Grand Stand at the Jackson Motorplex there will be face painting, inflatables, and big wheel races.
Great for the kids and the kids at heart.
