Greene County will be abuzz with activity this weekend with Greene County Days taking place beginning Friday, Sept. 10 and running through Sunday, Sept. 12. Events are taking place throughout the county with entertainment, food, vendors and a wide array of other attractions.
The highlight of the event is the Greene County Days Pageant, which will take place on Saturday at 3 p.m. on the stage in the Roodhouse Square Park (now known as the Dr. Ludwig Dech Memorial Park). The crowd will be introduced to six contestants vying for the title for 2021 Miss Greene County Days, 12 contestants for Junior Miss Greene County Days and six for Little Miss Greene County Days.
Roodhouse Greene County Days events kickoff Friday, Sept. 10 with the park filled with a variety of vendors and Model Citizen playing on the park stage from 4-7 p.m.
Saturday is the big day in Roodhouse. The parade kicks off events at 10 a.m. with the theme of Hometown Heroes. After the parade, the North Greene High School cheerleaders will be hosting bingo in the park.
Local up-and-coming musical artist Tyler Maul will take the stage from 11-2 in the park to provide the entertainment for the afternoon.
After the kids collect all that candy and get fueled up on the sugar, they can work off all that energy in the bounce houses which they can play in FREE all day. They will be shut down during the pageant, but will reopen afterwards and be open through the supper hours.
While the kids are playing in the bounce houses, the adults can be wetting their whistles in the Beverage Garden and participating in a bags tournament which will have cash prizes.
Music in the Beverage Garden includes the 10-55 band from 7:30-11:30 p.m. on Friday and The Brat Pack from 8 p.m. to Midnight on Saturday.
Festivities in Greenfield on Saturday will take place at Rives Lake beginning at 11 a.m. with food being served and the opening of the Beverage Garden. The Seventh Annual BBQ By The Lake sampling will kick off at 3 p.m.
For those who have frustrations to work through, the sport of axe throwing will begin at 3 p.m. and run indefinitely. For those who prefer to throw to a beat, the Elderly Brothers will be providing music to throw by on the stage from 3 to 6 p.m. The band 3’s Company will take the stage from 8 to midnight.
In White Hall, the Drag-O-Way Reunion on Saturday will bring in classic cars from around the country and a bevel of beauties to boot to compete in the Hometown Honey pinup contest that will take place at noon.
Just down the road, on Highway 67, Gregory Farm will celebrate their 200th anniversary on all three days with tours of an 1800’s log cabin, Carnot’s barn and a tent full of memorabilia.
There will be vendors set up in all locations as well as numerous yard sales in each town. Anyone who can’t find something to do or see or eat, isn’t looking very hard.
