Join the Linn Post & Pipe team for some fun at Linn’s “Summer Time Fun” Picnic on July 8th and 9th. A food and beer garden will be open both nights alongside tunes from DJ Dusty Bonar. There are plenty of activities that can spark the interest of anyone attending.
For the sports enthusiasts, there’s a corn hole and co-ed softball tournaments, a 5K run/walk and the demolition derby. The more laidback residents can enjoy the vendor fair, free swimming, the parade, a garden tractor show and derby bingo. Foodies will find plenty to eat at Saturday morning’s breakfast and a German meal for lunch. Kids can also participate in the youth fishing tournament, bounce houses and a fireworks show with the whole family. As a bonus, all the proceeds of the “Summer Time Fun” picnic will be put toward city park improvements. More information about the activities and events are listed below to ensure no one misses out on the fun!
