Wimbledon is hosting the third annual four-day Palooza from Thursday, July 18, to Sunday, July 21, which includes live music, a softball tournament and a parade through downtown.

Event coordinator Jessie Albrecht encourages everyone from the surrounding area to come participate.

“There’s four days for a reason,” Albrecht said. “There’s activities for everyone … we can occupy anyone from 2 years old to 82 years old.”

The event begins Thursday, July 18, with a farmers market from 4 to 6 p.m., followed by steak night at C.M.’s Place from 6 to 8 p.m.

Friday’s events begin at 5 p.m. with hammerschlagen and music on Main Street, followed by a corn-hole tournament at 7 p.m., an event with a $500 prize to the winner. The band 32 Below will play from 9:30 p.m. to 12:30 a.m.

Albrecht expects anywhere from 300 to 1,000 people to visit Wimbledon throughout the four-day span.

“This all started to get everybody to come back to town and come together again.”

For Saturday, the softball tournament will start at 10 a.m., following a pancake breakfast starting at 7:30 a.m. The parade will start its route downtown at 11 a.m. and two bands will perform at night.

Powerglide will take the stage from 5 to 8 p.m., followed by Redline from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. All live music is free to the public.

Sunday will conclude the Palooza with breakfast from 7:30 to 11 a.m. and church services will proceed at three different locations.

"Come out and be apart of the community," Albrecht said. "It's a time for everyone here to come together ... bring your kids, keep them entertained, enjoy the food.

"You will not be bored," she said.
