Cobblestone Days in Primghar


Cobblestone Days Parade Route

Fathers' Day weekend in Primghar continues to be the premier event in the area. Friday June 14 – Sunday June 16 are filled with food, recreation and worship throughout Primghar. It all begins Friday morning.

The Primghar Chamber is asking you to join in the celebration on Saturday morning by entering the parade. There is time to put together a float. If not, enter the parade riding in your van with a sign on the side, or lawnmower or bicycle. Walk. It's great exercise. Whatever your parade transportation, a parade is a great way to get in front of the public with your business, message or generosity. (Remember the pencils or candy!) To enter, be at the corner of 4th St. NE and N Hayes by 10:00am to line up. The parade starts and 11:00am.

The Mercy One Hospital Auxiliary Luncheon has served the public for years during this weekend at the Primghar Community Building. This luncheon serves as one of the Auxiliary's leading fundraiser. Funds to the Auxiliary all go toward improvements to the hospital environment, art, upgrades, sometimes equipment for patient health or monitoring. The small and mighty group has delivered many successful benefits to the hospital over the years.

Also on Friday a Glow Ball Golf Tournament is scheduled immediately following the Jaycee Figure 8 Races. Registration for the Glow Ball Tournament opens at 5:30 until 8:30pm at the Country Club. Races begin at 6:30pm at the Fair Grounds.

"The Square" in Primghar is a busy place all day Saturday. The car show is always a huge draw for collectors. Blocks of cars and motorcycles line the streets. Figure 8 drivers sometimes bring their cars to show. Registration begins at 9:00. Awards are announced at 3:00pm.

Vendors will be lining the west side of the square following the parade. A relaxing, outdoor shopping experience is conveniently located close to a luncheon fundraiser for Kids' Kampus. Several tournaments are scheduled for Saturday. Bean Bags registration takes place at Baxterz 11:30 – 12:30. Volleyball registration is at the city park from noon to 12:30pm. Play for both tournaments begins at 1:00pm. Three-on-three Basketball registration begins at 2:00 at the school playground. You will also find around the square, inflatables, ring toss, an art tent, train rides, and a kids' Ferris Wheel. Primghar EMS – Fire, ambulance, the police trailer and possibly the EMS trailer will all be available for touring, and questions including how to become involved. A special event is offered by the Humane Society. Adoptable pets will be there.

Free watermelon is a refreshing treat just before the 4:00pm start of the burn-out contest at the southwest corner of the Square.

The senior dance is at the community building 4:00 – 6:00pm. From 9:00 – midnight the annual Cobblestone Street Dance is hosted by Baxterz and Legends. "Pink Kaddillacs" is playing. There is a $10 cover charge.

The Community Church Service on the Courthouse law is at 10:30 Sunday morning with a potluck to follow at the community building.
