The theme for the third week of Thursdays in Pella is “Race for a Reason.” Along with other events happening on the square, teams of two to four people will race to complete challenges at various non-profit, or service related organizations. Last year’s tasks included unrolling and rerolling a firehose, bagging groceries, diapering a doll, and other team oriented tasks. Teams that finish, and qualify will be entered to win $100, $50, or $25 in Pella Bucks. Registration starts at 5:15pm and the Amazing Race style event will begin at 6pm. Participants under the age of 12, must have a parent on their team. There is no cost to participate.
