Stark Development Executive Directors Comments on the Area

It is the 4th of July Weekend which is always very busy in Stark County and particularly Dickinson. If you like a crowd and plenty of sun, then the SAX demolition derby on the 4th is for you. Huge prize money draws participants from far away and the fans are never disappointed. I ran demo's when I was young and had a blast. The fun is not limited to the stands, being in the pits is also crazy fun and exciting.

Thursday at 4:00 is one of the fun things you would not usually think about-the 4H Premium Sale at the DSU indoor arena. My daughter was in 4H and it was great fun to walk around and get up close with the kids and their animals. The thrill that they get from participating is wonderful to watch. Area businesses get a nice plug for bidding then give the animal back to the kids.

More motor heading at the Speedway on Friday night with extra prize money on the line. Also on Friday is the Headliner Concert featuring Montgomery Gentry with opening band Halfway to Hazard. Bring your Dodge.

Saturday its all about the kids again at Family Fun Day being held this year at Dickinson State University's front lawn. Bouncers, Slides, Obstacle Courses, Bungee Run (whatever that is?), Food Vendors and more. Be there at 11:00.

Of course there is the Parade. It starts at 10:00 AM and the theme is 45 years of Red, White and Blue! Come on Downtown and enjoy.

There is more-go to to learn all about it.
