Summerfest

SUMMERFEST is a day loaded with old fashioned 4th of July fun! 

The day begins at Fort Borst Park with a pancake breakfast, and a fun run (I Ran From The Cops and SWAT Challenge), followed by games, contests and entertainment throughout the day.  Next, head to downtown Centralia for the annual Summerfest parade.  The action then moves to the fairgrounds where a destruction derby can be found.  The day wraps up with an awesome fireworks display at the fairgrounds.  Fees are charged for the fun run, SWAT Challenge, food vendors (except breakfast) and the destruction derby; most other events are free!
