IMG-2072IMG-2072IMG-2072 IWhat a day for Longville !!! When it was all said and done..we had over 620 turtle racers registered. And doing our regular figuring of 3 other folks escorting each racer…you can do the math…Longville was entertaining more than 2000 people last Wednesday !! The weather was wonderful, a little overcast turned into a gloriously sunny day with mild breezes. The crowds got warmed up with record numbers of hula hoopers and dancers..Moms and Dads, Grandmas and Grandpas out there on main street with the youngsters. Actually turtle racers come in all ages. It’s a generational thing, a family tradition. It takes a lot of volunteers each week to put on the races..and our volunteers are very committed to the work they do there. A normal number of racers in July would be around 350 racers…so you can see our volunteers were really hustling Wednesday. But they did an amazing job and at the end of the last race when the final winner was called… they all were pretty proud of themselves. Many new memories were created that day. Come see us next week and every Wednesday through August 21st. See you at the races.
