Emida residents can expect a return to form during this year's Emida Day.

The event will be hosted at the Emida Community Center and organizers have a full agenda for community members to enjoy.

Emida Day is one of the largest fundraisers for the Emida Community and proceeds from the event typically go towards funding community events, building maintenance and sponsoring local families who may need assistance after an emergency.

After last year’s event was canceled, residents will see a return of the traditional Emida Days logging events which is one of the day’s main attractions.

“The logging games are one of the big things we have planned for the day,” organizer Mary Price said. “That’s one of the main things people like to see.”

The event will also feature a community breakfast and an all-day craft fair. Price said this year the event will boast 16 vendors, all selling a variety of items from canned goods, flea market items, art and more.

The breakfast will be followed by the annual parade, which will start by the Emida Fire Hall.

Lunch will also be served by the Emida Community Bible Church, which will have burgers and hot dogs for event attendees at noon.

There will also be lots of things for children throughout the day including a bouncy house and a dunk tank.

The day will be topped off with a community dance featuring a live performance from local act My Own Worst Enemy.

Festivities will officially start at 8 a.m. and go until 11 p.m.

Emida Day is free and open to the public.
