Growler’s Gathering July 30

The 18th Annual Growler’s Gathering in Leader will be held Saturday, July 30, from 11 a.m. until dusk.
Pig races, fireworks, music, food and a parade are just a few of the events on the roster. This year’s theme is ‘Red, White and Blue American Beach Party.’
There will be something for everyone at the Growler’s Gathering.
The parade begins at 2 p.m. First, second and third place prizes will be awarded for the best parade floats.
Following the parade, at 3 p.m., is the annual Growler’s Competition.
Two ‘LA (Leader Area) Racing Pigs’ shows will be held during the gathering: one at 5 p.m. and a second at 7 p.m. Stop by the races to cheer on your favorite pig and perhaps win a prize during the evening.
A food booth will be available throughout the event; and there will be beer wagons and an outdoor bar on site as well.
The live band ‘Two Way Crossing’ takes the stage at 8:30 p.m. and fireworks begin at dusk.
