(Neb.)-Rushville Gears Up For Fun Days Celebration

By: Roxie Graham-Marski Posted at: 08/30/2013 06:49 PM

(RUSHVILLE)-Fall is just around the corner, but summer lingers on for a little while longer with various community activities. This weekend is the time to head over to Rushville for some fun in the sun as the community celebrates its annual Fun Days. The fun starts Saturday and runs through Monday.
 
Saturday boasts breakfast, hot dogs, and sloppy joes at the Home Café from 7:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m. Registration for the 5K Walk/Bike/Run is at 7:30 a.m. in the city park, and the run begins at 8:00 a.m. The parade starts at 10:00 a.m. with the theme of “Community Service.” Grand marshals this year will be the Legion Breakfast Cooks.
 
After the parade, Yoba’s will be sponsoring a Calcutta and will also be offering beer burgers, brats, French fries, and nachos. The turtle and frog races will be a favorite with kids and those young at heart. The 20 Bar will be serving kabobs, homemade fries and wings, and in case you don’t have enough food options yet, the Legion will be offering a chicken dinner from 11:00-1:00 p.m. and there will be an Angie Young food booth set up in the city park. Also in the city park, the car show will draw vehicle junkies and other admirers. The swimming pool opens at 1:00 p.m. The Gordon Rushville cheerleaders will be hosting a game of Dodge Ball on the city’s tennis courts, and the rodeo begins at 1:00 p.m. Yoba’s will offer a prime rib special starting at 5:00 p.m. and lasting until it’s gone.
 
On Sunday, head on over to the Legion for breakfast from 7:00-11:00 a.m. and don’t miss out on a game of pasture pool at 9:00 a.m. At 10:00 a.m., a church service will be held in the city park with Jason Funk officiating. The swimming pool opens at 1:00 p.m. again for swimmers enjoyment, and a co-ed softball tournament and qualifications for Monday’s golf tournament will round out the afternoon. The golf tournament will take place at the Sandridge Golf Course.
