NIBLEY – A fun run, comedy night and chalk art contest have been some of the highlights of this year’s annual Heritage Days celebration. The weeklong event will conclude with a Friday and Saturday full of events.
Friday will feature the Mayor’s Dinner at 5 p.m. and a performance of the “Wizard of Oz” by the Nibley Children’s Theatre at 7 p.m.
Saturday will kick off with a parade at 10 a.m. followed by the Family Festivities event at Elkhorn Park. Nibley Recreation and Community Services Director Chad Wright said those festivities will include Spikeball, bubble soccer, Gaga ball and food trucks, but will also have activities that center around the city’s heritage.
“We have a number of different heritage-based activities,” he said. “From two-man saw to making little wooden top toys to play with to washboard laundry by hand and trundling hoops.”
There will also be the return of the beard and moustache contest, an event that hasn’t taken place since the first year of Heritage Days, back when it was known as Nibley City Days.
“That will be held at 12:30 at the Family Festivities event,” Wright said. “We’ve got some great sponsors that are donating some fun items in several different categories.”
There will be a quilt show from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. both days at the Nibley City Hall.
“There is a lot of great heritage behind some of the quilts presented by the South Cache Quilters,” Wright said.
The weekend’s events will conclude Saturday with the Nibley Heritage Show at 8:30 p.m., a firework show at 10 p.m. and a glow-in-the-dark youth dance at 11 p.m. A complete schedule can be found at this link.
