The summer is winding down, and most of our local towns have had their respective festivals.  But in Rice this Saturday, there is one more event that you probably won't want to miss.

Let me rephrase that.  There is an event that your kids will never forgive you for - if you DON'T take them.  I'm talking about Family Fun Day, all day this Saturday, in Rice.

This is a day that everyone in the family will enjoy.  There will be a softball, and a volleyball tournament - so the grown-ups get to play a little bit!  There will be live music playing for most of the day, as well.  The Beer Gardens open at noon.

The kids are going to go "nuts" with all of the games, inflatables, and the petting zoo, just waiting for them.

Make sure to look for the MIX 94.9 van in the parade, starting at 3pm.  Do you like Pearson's Salted Nut Rolls?  We'll be throwing them out to the crowd!

We can't wait to see you in Rice this Saturday.  Below is the complete list of events and times.
