Henderson has ben emoji-cized for Community Days, and you can get in the spirit too by participating in the 25+ events scheduled for this years community celebration taking place on July 14, 15, and 16. With such a large list of events, there are certain events that will be exciting for different age groups
If you are a kid:
You will have a busy schedule starting with the Henderson Swimming Pool opening at 1:00 pm on Friday. Then after the BBQ, take your family to Main Street for Rock the Block. Bring your roller blades and roller skates, scooters and trikes as you cruse up and down the street (no big wheeled bikes please). Before you leave, head to Perks for ice cream. On Saturday, be sure to catch some candy at the parade and then spend the afternoon in the downtown park participating in the free activities from the Putt-Putt Golf to the giant inflatables. Finish off the evening at the family pool party and watching the fireworks display.
If you are a junior high/high school student:
We know you have a lot of energy and want to have a good time, so we invite you to Rock the Block Friday night and then wake up early for the 5K/10K Run/Walk on Saturday morning. All weekend you can participate in the Photos Scavenger Hunt as you take pictures around town depicting the corresponding line of emojis.
If you are an adult:
While there is a lot going on for the kids, we still have a full schedule of events for adults and families. The fun kicks off Friday at the Chamber BBQ with the Revival Band performing in the Downtown Park followed by the adults softball tournament. On Saturday, morning be sure to check out the 5K and 10K races if you are athletically inclined or cheer on the runners along the race route. Then Heritage Park will be hosting a pancake feed. Grab some coffee with the Henderson Foundation and then watch the parade on Main Street. Don’t miss the craft vendors all day long in the downtown park and be sure to stop by the Men’s Alumni Basketball Game, the Car Show, Alumni Volleyball, and activities in the downtown park. After the pool party, watch the fireworks in the Lakeview park. The weekend activities wrap-up with the community church service, golf tournament, and eclipse presentation on Sunday.
If you are looking for food:
Whether you are visiting Henderson for a reunion or just making a point to be in Henderson during Community Days, there are a few food stops you need to make during the weekend. On Friday night don’t miss the Chamber BBQ followed by ice cream at Perks. For a late night snack, the ball field concession stand will be open during the softball tournament. On Saturday, start your day at Heritage Park with pancakes and then have coffee with the Henderson Foundation at Perks. For lunch, there is a change in the schedule. Instead of having food vendors in the downtown park, Henderson COOP will be serving hot dogs for free out of their south bays after the parade or you can head to the Lakeview Park for food served by the Class of 2020. On Sunday, there will be snow cones served after the community church service.
