A summer full of special events in Sturtevant is winding down but not without a couple of last hurrah events.

 

August 6-7: Tent camping at Firemen’s Park. From 4 p.m. August 6 until 11 a.m. August 7, families are invited to the first all-village camping event. Small camping grills and coolers (but no glass) will be permitted, and small bonfires may also be allowed weather permitting. Concessions will be available from 5 to 8 p.m., and quiet hour begins at 11 p.m.

August 20: 10th Annual Iron Horse 5K begins at 8 a.m. at Firemen’s Park and ends 3.1 miles later with medals awarded to top 3 finishers for both men and women (kids, too!) in their age groups. There is also an amazing pool of door prizes. Early registration is $18 through June 30, and proceeds are used to support village-wide activities throughout the year. Races in the past have helped the village purchase two steel doors for the bathrooms at South Park and to install fencing around the community garden.
