Join in the fun at the Castalia Cold Creek Celebration!

July 06, 2010

The Castalia Cold Creek Celebration has been a tradition to the community within Margaretta Township for the past 34 years and will continue in 2010 with a family oriented – event packed weekend on July 16, 17 & 18. The activities each year encourage community involvement and participation while inviting individuals from area communities to share in the great environment Castalia has to offer.

Friday night begins the weekend with the announcement of the 2010 Cold Creek Celebration Queen and her court along with the Little Miss and Little Master titles. The Village Pizza, pizza eating contest (with great prizes) will provide some humor prior to the musical entertainment provided by “The CocoBeanOs”. This band made up of local members has taken the north coast by storm, and we are thrilled to have them with us, once again!

On Saturday, it’s off to the races .. with a 5K Run/Walk! Then the day procedes at a more casual pace with kid friendly events including kid’s olympics, games, bingo, a talent show, a “Are You Smarter than a Fifth Grader” challenge, decorated bicycle parade and a pet parade to name a few (all free of charge). We welcome Fisher Titus Medical Center with bicycle helmets for children (small fee involved). The Castalia Lions Club is proud to bring Pilot Dog demonstration to the main stage. A baking contest is very popular with all ages and the popular Bed Race down Main Street is worth watching. The Garden Tractor Pull has gained a large following as the participants from the Tri County Garden Tractor Pullers Association bring out their best tractors to entertain the crowds. The day will conclude with “Lonesome Pony” taking the stage. Everyone is looking forward to their popular music performance as they fill the streets with a crowd to listen, dance and enjoy.

Sunday starts with a Community Worship Service at the Congregational Church on Main Street. All denominations are invited to take a moment to give thanks for a great weekend. Don’t miss the live gospel singing provided by Sandhill Baptist Church at the main stage. The Congregational Church will also be celebrating their 175th Anniversary with an open house and luncheon. An Antique Car Show and Grand Celebration Parade highlight the afternoon. Area bands, queens from area festivals, baton corps, and community organizations are proud to be represented in the parade. Duck Drop Bingo, the Duck Race (using rubber duckies) and the Celebration Raffle are all games of chance and a way to take home a prize to commemorate the weekend. We are grateful to the many organizations who generously donate each year.

All are welcome to attend this weekend of fellowship and community spirit surrounded by the streams that enticed our ancestors to live here! Come see what the community is all about!
