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 tricycle race takes place on East Laurel Street. Entrants gather at 9:30 for sign-ups, and the races start at 10:00. Enter the morning of the race, Tricycle entry form 2013 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. New this year is a race for bigger people, 14 years and older. Winner of this race will receive a $50 gift certificate to the Cliff House in Fort Bragg.
The Kiddie Parade is a short, fun parade that happens right after the tricycle race. Registration begins at 11:00 and the parade starts at 11:30. 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, Dwayne Ray’s Carpet Cleaning and Janitorial Service, and the Fort Bragg Kiwanis. All participants will enjoy ice cream donated by Clover and Hopper Dairy. Contact Tania Sousa at 964-5517 or 964-2627 for more information or download the entry form: Kiddie Parade entry 2013.
The Kiddie Games happen Saturday noon to 3, at 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.
