61st Annual Berthoud Day

Berthoud Day 2014a Crowd (3)

Traditions are very important. They help us remember where we've been and how things have changed. From what I've been told since I didn't live in Berthoud 61 years ago, they used to be able to wrestle pigs in the mud. OK, that is one tradition I'm not even interested in bringing back.

We have kept several traditions and one is the old fashioned Base Ball game. That is where they play with no mitts and use a larger ball. That will be at 1 p.m. at the Ivy Stockwell school grounds. It's free to come and watch. They even provide bales of hay for your "stadium seating."

The day begins with the boy scout fundraiser pancake breakfast from 6:30 - 11 a.m. at the Depot in Railroad Park. It is all you can eat at $7 for adults and $4 for kids 12 and under.

Berthoud Habitat for Humanity will have their 5K run that begins at Fickel Park at 8 am. You will need to sign up in advance at www.BerthudHabitat.org/Race.
There is also a free 1K for the kids.

Our well-known Berthoud Day parade begins at 11 a.m. If you are interested, we ask that you fill out a registration form which can be found on our website at www.BerthoudColorado.com; News & Events; Berthoud Day. It starts on 2nd Street and goes west down Mountain Ave. to 8th Street and turns north. This is definitely one of those traditions I mentioned earlier. It's a great parade.

At Town Park the rest of the festivities begin after the parade. We have lots of vendors for kids through adults. (We still have room for more vendors.) The Berthoud Community Fire District will be having free drawings for a boy's BMX bike and a girl's bike. They will also have a "helmet blitz" where they are giving away bike helmets.

Our bands this year are as follows:
12:30 - 1:30 p.m. 101st Army Dixieland Band
1:30 - 2:30 p.m. local talent on our Community Stage
2:30 - 3:45 p.m. Woody Procell & the Snowy River Band (Country)
3:45 - 4:15 p.m. local talent on our Community Stage
4:15 - 5:30 Woody Process & the Snowy Rive Band
5:30 - 6:30 p.m. Berthoud's Got Talent on the Community Stage

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to give us a call at the chamber office 970-532-4200. We hope to see you there.
