New this year will be the addition of Julio’s bar. Hayward has not had a bar for two years, but last year it was semi open and this year it will be opened and participating in the activities.

Events on Friday will include a softball tournament and city-wide rummage sales.

The majority of the events will be on Saturday including the annual mud bog held by the Hayward Fire Department, the April Sorensen Memorial Half Marathon and a street dance.

The April Sorensen half marathon starts at 7:30 a.m. in Albert Lea and ends in Hayward.

The schedule is still tentative and more activities are being planned for all three days.
