Wiffle ball tourney, Field of Flags highlight Hey Days this weekend

Published 10:49am Thursday, July 25, 2013

Hayfield residents have their days off scheduled for this weekend, for the annual Hey Days celebration.

Events start at 8 a.m. Friday with a wiffle ball tournament, followed by a flea market, golf tournament and heartwarming Field of Flags at Field Crest Care Center. Then the wanna-be singers will crawl out of the woodwork for “The Voices: Karaoke Contest” at 8 p.m. The event has blown up and is in its fourth year.

“We tried this karaoke, and it just packed the place,” said Greg Demmer, Hey Days committee chairman.

Like many other communities, Hayfield has its own 5K run/walk, softball tournament, volleyball tournament, tractor pull, mud bog and plenty of games for kids. The Hayfield Fire Department chicken fry at 5 p.m. Saturday, is also a staple. Then, Time Machine hits the stage from 8:30 to 12:30 p.m.

The softball and volleyball tournaments continue on Sunday, along with a trip back in time at the car and antique fire truck show. Festivities continue late into Sunday in Hayfield, as well. A parade begins at 2 p.m.; the Blue Denim Band will perform at the American Legion from 3 to 7 p.m., and fireworks at the Hayfield School parking lot will wrap up the events.

Weekend wristbands are $10 at the gate or available for $5 in advance at Marv’s Bar, Casey’s, American Legion, Citizens State Bank, NAPA Auto, Oaks Bar and Grill, Ryan’s Foods, and Brownsdale’s Frontier Lounge and Greenway.
