Folks looking for entertainment flood Royalton during its Platte River Day celebration, held the first Saturday in August — which this year, is Aug. 6. Sponsored by the Royalton Lions Club for 17 years, the day holds food and activities for everyone who attends.
The day will begin at 8 a.m. with a 5K fun run.
At 10:30 a.m., a parade will wind through Royalton, followed by a unique auction at noon, turtle races at 1 p.m., a kids’ tractor pull at 2 p.m. and an old-fashioned egg toss at 3 p.m. In the evening, a street dance will entertain crowds from 8 p.m. – midnight.
All day long, food and beverage booths will be open as well as kids games, inflatables, a petting zoo, Kinship cart rides and more.
