The Kiddie Tricycle Race, Kiddie Parade, and Kiddie Games draw little competitors, while kids of all ages enjoy the Ugly Dog Contest; cheering their favorite firemen in the annual water fight; scouting the craft show for kid food, crafts and activities like climbing the rock wall; as well as participating in the Paul Bunyan Days Parade or watching with family and friends.
The just-for-kids events are the Kiddie Tricycle Race, the Kiddie Parade, and the Kiddie Games.
The tricycle race takes place on East Laurel Street. Entrants gather at 9:00 for sign-ups, and the races start at 10:00. Enter the morning of the race, download the entry form here, or pick one up at Century 21, 809 N Main, in Fort Bragg. There are 4 divisions: 0-2 year olds, 3-4, and 5-6. Prizes are awarded for 1st, 2nd, & 3rd place in each division.
The Kiddie Parade is a short, fun parade that happens right after the tricycle race. Registration begins at 10:30 and the parade starts at 11:00. This parade is just for kids, kids on foot, in wagons, on bikes, pretty much anything they can dream up. Costumes are optional, but many kids come dressed as their favorite character – even Paul Bunyan, who will be there live and in-person. Two lucky kids will win bicycles donated by Fort Bragg Cyclery, and the Fort Bragg Kiwanis. All kids 12 and under enjoy a free cup of Clover ice cream. Contact Tania Sousa at 964-5517 or 964-2627 for more information or download the entry form.
The Kiddie Games happen Saturday noon to 3, at their new location – the CV Starr Community Center, 300 S. Lincoln. Like all just-for-kids events, they are free and just-for-fun… unless you count the glory of winning and your very own ribbon to celebrate your achievement. Old-fashion games and small town fun for every kid who wants to play.
