Oktemberfest for Kids Form

The focus is on fitness, fun and family on Thursday night as Kids are Oktemberfest’s special guests! 

Activities begin at 5 p.m. and are staggered throughout the evening in attempt to get young students home a little earlier on a school night.

*Kindom Klowns will be in attendance from 5-7pm making balloon animals.

*Sparkle Hoop Dance will be teaching how to hula hoop from 5-7pm.

*Come dance with Zumba Kids from 5:15-5:45pm on the Courthouse lawn.

*Basketball Spot Shot from 5-6pm.

The Kids Fun Run is one of the headline events for the active crowd.  Registered runners receive a race T-Shirt, a medal of participation and a water bottle for the $10.00 entry fee. Pre-registration is encouraged to guarantee shirt size; however race day entries are accepted between 5:15 and 5:45 as long as the limit has not been met.  

The first group of ¼ mile runners will line up at approximately 6:15 to race instructions.  Following will be the ½ mile runners around 6:30 and the mile runners beginning at approximately 6:45pm. Races may be split into two groups depending upon the number of runners signed up for each race length.  ¼ mile runners will run a half lap, ½ mile runners will run a full lap and the older runners will complete two laps to make 1 mile race complete. 

It may not be the Miss America pageant or Mr. Universe, but the smiles will be just as big when the crowns are placed on the head of the lucky girl and boy during the Little Miss and Mr. Oktemberfest coronation.  Little Miss and Mr. Oktemberfest is open to area first and second graders.  Registration will be held by the steps of the courthouse from 5:15 until 5:45 with the crowning to begin at 6:00.  All registrants must be able to ride in the Saturday morning parade if chosen.

Little Miss & Mr. will be chosen by a random drawing in front of friends and family on the courthouse stage.
