Car Show, Games, 5k, Blood Drive Among The Many Activities
What can be better than spending a beautiful November Saturday chilling at a car show, enjoying a 5k, snacking on great food, playing games, saving lives at a blood drive, and watching some of the most entertaining acts around? Nothing! What makes it better is that all of this can be enjoyed right in your own community!
Cleveland Proud Day is back on Saturday, Nov 6 from 10am – 2pm.
Located on the Cleveland High School football field, this year’s event will see performance from the cheer teams, dance teams, choruses, and bands from the high school, Cleveland and Swift Creek Middle Schools, and Cleveland, Polenta, and West View Elementary Schools. Six area schools are coming together to make this day fun and entertaining for families and the community.
In between catching the different performances, families can win prizes at different games hosted by the high school’s clubs. Still have energy to burn? Spend some time in our bouncy houses! We’ve also got firetrucks and much more for you and the family to explore.
If exhibits are more your thing, then be sure to check out the Cleveland Cruise-In and Car Show going on at our Cleveland Proud Day event. Classic and modern cars, trucks, and tractors will be on display. Take part in voting for the People’s Choice Award to select a winner! If you want to show your own vehicle, register and join in the fun! Registration opens at 8 am with the Ugly Mug food truck on site for a chilly morning! Our car show participants will have the option of a reduced registration fee with the donation to the West Johnston High Food Pantry, which meets needs within our shared community.
Interested in helping the community? How about saving 3 lives in 45 minutes. The Blood Connection will be joining us. With a goal of getting 27 units, all donors will receive a hoodie AND a $10 donation will be made to the West Johnston High Food Pantry. If you are interested in donating, you must make an appointment in advance. Register in advance by visiting this site. The blood drive runs from 9am – 2pm.
We also have a 5k hosted by our Cross Country team! Find out more information by visiting bit.ly/clevelandproudday. Registration begins at 7:45 and starts at 8:30.
In between your play, be sure to fuel up with freshly cooked food in our concessions stand hosted by the CvHS FFA.
This will be the third year of Cleveland Proud Day, and this is a great way to spend a Saturday connecting with others in the community. We hope to see you there!
