No, you did not miss Duvall Days!
Yes, it’s usually the same weekend as the pancake breakfast but this year, it’s not.
The decision to move the date was made for several reasons, none of which really matter. The only thing that matters is… Duvall still gets to celebrate Duvall Days and…for two days this year.
• The name for one – Duvall Days will now be known as the Country Living Festival. This celebration carries on the same long-standing traditions while it honors the future of our community.
• A pie eating contest in front of Tressa’s bakery.
• The TEEN Zone which includes more activities for teens…volleyball, mechanic creeper races and hay bale tossing.
• Running of the Balls! This is a new fundraiser. The balls can be purchased for $5 each. They are available for pre-sale at various locations in town and can also be purchased on the day of the event. The balls will be rolled downhill on 1st Street from Stella. Top prize is $1,000!
• Tie Dye project in the park.
• First annual Country Classic Bike Ride on Sunday to benefit the Alzheimer’s Association.
• Social Media Campaign. Twitter will be used to promote times of events and special discounts at various vendors throughout the weekend. To participate, follow us at twitter/DuvallDivas.com.
What’s back by popular demand?
• The closing of Main Street from 8 a.m. – 6 p.m.
• Duvall Days parade
• Pony rides and the animal petting zoo, located on Valley Street behind Community Business Services.
• Yummy food from our local restaurants and assorted street vendors.
