Well, that's one way to make fun of pigs and Hog Days, but
here's another...come to our annual end of summer Labor Day
weekend celebration and make some fun for yourself by enjoying our
last poke at Summer before Autumn arrives! If you are the
competitive type, we have three health fitness runs and walks (one
just for kids), golf, disc golf, co-ed softball, a biking tour of
the Kewanee/Henry County area that can be competitive or not (it's
up to you) and the ever popular Hog Wallow Classic - a mud
fest with a little volleyball thrown in!
Not into physical, then how about a stroll through the flea
market/craft show that takes place all weekend in one of our
picturesque parks, participation in the Model T and A Road Rally or
scooping up the bargains at our local library's annual book sale or
the Boss Manufacturing/Excel Leather Outlet coat and glove sale.
Oh and don't forget the annual Hog Days parade! A one mile march
of bands, floats and everything red, white and blue to celebrate our
roots in agriculture.
And if you get hungry, we have the World's Larget Outdoor Pork
Barbecue going on all weekend long serving over 30 thousand pork
chop and pork burger sandwiches as well as over forty food vendors
set up on the streets of downtown Kewanee and at the flea
market/craft show. We have numerous "all you can eat" breakfasts put
on by local clubs and service organizations as well as a host of
restaurants and local eating establishments ready and waiting for
you all weekend long.
For kids of all ages we have C.D.A.C Carnival and Concessions
with dozens of family-friendly games and rides. Free stage shows are
held all weekend long only a stone's throw from all that food we
just told you about and there's plenty of time to just relax and
enjoy the final days of summer with family, friends, guests and
