So, on Sunday afternoon, maybe you’re returning home from church and finding your Sunday best a little too snug after a few too many funnel cakes and blooming onions at the Jenny Wiley Pioneer Festival.
What’s a person to do?
Fortunately, there is a chance for you to join other Floyd Countians for a chance to have a little fun with your family, take a chance to win some prizes and burn away a few of those fall festival calories in one fell swoop.
The fifth annual Second Sunday event will take place from 2:30 to 5 p.m., Sunday afternoon, at the Elkhorn Recreation and Education Park, located near the intersection of Route 680 and Route 777. And having seen previous years’ events, we can promise that you will be missing out on a lot of fun if you don’t attend this year.
Now, some of you might be thinking that spending an afternoon exercising doesn’t sound like a lot of fun. Second Sunday will change your mind. Organizers have lined up a lot of fun activities, including corn hole, hiking, Zumba, walking, a relay race and more. In fact, you might have so much fun that you forget that you’re also getting a workout.
Who knows? You might even find an activity you enjoy so much that you’ll be inspired to drop a few pounds in the months to come.
So if you’re looking for something fun to do that has the added benefit of making you healthier, head on over to Elkhorn Park on Sunday. Your heart, lungs and waistline will thank you for it.
