Strongman/Strongwoman Competition Comes to Strasburg, Illinois
Lots to do this weekend! If you are looking for some great entertainment, join the Village of Strasburg, Illinois in celebrating their 2016 Lions Club Homecoming, July 8- 10th! This town, also known as the “Home of the Gnomes,” knows how to celebrate. Come on out and see for yourself.
This event is open to the public, and there will be all sorts of family friendly activities to keep you busy! Be sure to come hungry as these folks know how to cook up some great food!
Friday night the festivities will begin with a magical evening and lots of laughter. Saturday morning, you can run or walk off all the tasty treats you ate the night before by participating in the “Gnomecoming” 5K Run/Walk. If basketball is more your style, there will also be a 3 on 3 tournament that will be sure to test your endurance. Tractor pulls will keep the afternoon going, as well as games for both kids and adults.
Sunday, the day you have all been waiting for is the . . . THE STRONGMAN/STRONGWOMAN COMPETITON! That’s right, no need to watch Ninja Warrior on your lazy boy because YOU WILL SEE some LIVE ACTION right here in Strasburg, where this town truly is “Right! In the Middle of Everything.” So, come on out, flex your muscles, down that last bit of protein shake, grunt, yell, and sweat! And everyone else, be sure to cheer on the participants as they will be putting on a great show!
