Report from Longville Turtle Race Number Two
The second 2014 Longville Turtle race of the season met with lots of rain, but still happy, smiling faces from the turtle racers!!! We had 120 racers, so with mom, dad, grandma and grandpa, that means about 400-500 folks came out in the rain to race!! The event has a carnival atmosphere, with music and games and food served right on the main street, which blocks off thru traffic from 12:30-4:00 every Wednesday from June through August for the Turtle Races!!
Our announcer this year, who can be seen up top on the "Turtlemobile" is a local talent, going to St Scholastica College, who wants to be a GAME SHOW HOST...this is the perfect summer job for him...and he is really good at it. You need to stop by and give a listen..he is a natural !!
