Go Wild in Wilton

By Michael Johnson, Editor

The Wilton Park Board has done it again. Another stellar line up of fun activities is planned for Wilton's premier summer event, Wild in Wilton, June 8 and 9. Last year, the event brought out about 1,000 people. This year, with alumni coming at the same time as the event, it should be an even bigger day. All events except the road race, parade and alumni banquet are being held at the shelters and fields at South Park, just east of Cenex. Saturday starts with the opening ceremonies, performed by the American Legion at 8:55 a.m.  The 5K run follows at 9 a.m.  Those looking to take part in the run should show up to register from 8:15 to 8:45 a.m. Those who make it through or just happened to be watching are reminded of a breakfast buffet at 9:30 a.m. at Fiddlestix. Those looking to be in the parade, which is new this year, can register at the school at 9 a.m. The parade starts at 10 a.m.  along with the softball games. See the attached map for the route. Softball games continue on through the day depending on the number of teams that come to play. The final morning activities are the kids games at 11 a.m. Kids age 4 to 12 can take part in 50 and 100 yard dashes, kickball, three-legged race and more.
