Celebrate 75th Fairview Old Timers Reunion & Summer Festival July 16-18

After having to cancel last year’s event due to COVID-19, the Fairview Old Timers Reunion & Summer Festival is back bigger and better than ever with an all class reunion, free entertainment, free food and so much more.

After enjoying family movie night in the park Thursday night, start the weekend off Friday evening with registration of Old Timers and Hamburgers in the Park starting at 5 p.m. and entertainment by The Relics starting at 6 p.m. Junior High aged kids can enjoy a swim party from 8-10 p.m. for only $5. Festival organizers are expecting a great turnout with people who wish to come to the park and have a good time, and then head downtown to patronize local businesses.

Old Timers registration starts at 9 a.m., Saturday, July 16. The day’s highlights include the annual car show, which takes place from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. in the park, a kiddie parade at 11 a.m. as well as a grand parade at 1 p.m. with the theme of “Lets Have a Party!” The Festival committee encourages everyone, classes, businesses and individuals, to create a float, ride your horse or bicycle, or drive a cool vehicle and make the 75th Grand Parade one of the best ever!

Take advantage of the free, delicious home cooked roast beef lunch beginning at 11:30 a.m. The flag raising, a variety musical program featuring local talent and recognition of this year’s button honoree will follow the parade. The tug-o-war will test the abilities of all those who participate and is so much fun to watch! Patronize the vendors who will be selling food and merchandise all day.

The Fairview Community Foundation will have bouncy houses, laser tag and more fun activities for the kids. A generous grant from Interstate Engineering, Sidney will help defray the cost, making it affordable for everyone.

Cool off at the ice cream social and take a tour of the newly remodeled Fairview School from 3-5 p.m. The popular duck races will start at 4 p.m.

Downtown is always alive with music and lots of visiting as classmates and friends catch up, so plan to stay for the evenings as well. There may be a few surprises in store!

The Fairview Community Foundation will also host their annual Sugar Valley Hoopfest that weekend.

A non-denominational church service in Sharbono Park Sunday morning will wrap up the official festivities.
