Roscoe Fun Days are back to a two- day festival this year, after being only one day for the last couple of years. The two days, Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 6 and 7, will be packed full of activities, food and refreshments.

Fun Days kick off at 9 a.m on Saturday, Aug. 6, with a 12-team volleyball tournament. A flea market will begin Saturday morning and run both Saturday and Sunday.

Food and refreshments will be available both days for oneís eating enjoyment. Saturday evening will end with a dance, beginning at 9 p.m. Music will be by Bogus Brooks.

The parade is the highlight of Sundayís festivities. Herb Koetter is the grand marshal. He was chosen because of his involvement with St. Agnes Church and the Roscoe community. Koetter has been the treasurer of the Roscoe Recreation Club for approx-imately 15 years.

The parade will begin at 12:30 p.m. on the east side of Roscoe, going west to Main Street, then south a block, turning east, and ending at the church.

There will be approximately 20 units in the parade, including local floats, Roscoeís mayor, Marie Mehr, tractors, queens and more.

After the parade, games for kids and adults will take place. The adults will have a softball toss on the baseball diamond, bingo and a dunking machine to participate in. The children will have a variety of games to pick from. A country store will sell new items donated by local businesses and individuals.

Food, beverages and the flea market will continue on Sunday.

The two-day festival will wind down Sunday afternoon with a dance beginning at 2 p.m. Music will be by Young Country. The dance will end at 5 p.m. followed by the raffle drawing.

For fun, food and fellowship, the place to be this weekend is Roscoe Fun Days.
