5.00 pm Community Picnic:

The community picnic is a Frontier Days tradition that gets better every year. It is a great time for friends and neighbors to get together and celebrate the joys of living in a small town. The picnic is held every year in Haradine Park and is considered the official start to the Frontier Days weekend. Carson City Village Market is our proud sponsor of this wonderful event.

During the picnic, there will be time for the kids to play on the park's wonderful facilities.  There will also be a craft for the kids to make, free of charge, while supplies last.  Throughout the evening there will be music and plenty of activities to take do. At 6:30 p.m., make sure you head to the banks of Fish Creek to watch the ever-popular Duck Race. Be sure you purchase your Duck Race ticket from a committee member before the race begins.

Also at the Community Picnic, make sure you and your team sign up for the Community Scavenger Hunts.  This year there will be two different hunts.  One hunt is our traditional scavenger hunt aimed for teens and adults.  Teams can get the list of rules and the list of 'items' to find throughout the weekend.  The other scavenger hunt is aimed for elementary aged kids as well.  Both Scavenger Hunts will take place throughout the weekend. Deadline will be 4:30 p.m. on Saturday night, but you don't have to wait until then. There will be a drop off box waiting for you under the tent adjacent to the launch field. You can drop off your 'items' any time throughout the weekend. Make sure your name and contact information is included. This is a great way to get involved in Frontier Days.
