WAITSBURG-Waitsburg Celebration Days, always the third weekend in May, is peaking over the horizon. After two years of event cancellations, a new Board of Directors has planned a jam-packed weekend to make up for their absence.

Representing the Waitsburg Celebration Days as hostess are two local ladies, Ashlyn Brooks, of Waitsburg, and Hope Adkins, of Dayton. The hostesses are tasked with being the face of Waitsburg Celebration Days, and traveling to local parades and other events to promote not only their weekend, but the town of Waitsburg as a whole.

Hostess Hope Adkins is the 14-year-old daughter of Steven and Alicia Adkins. She is currently in the 8th grade at Starbuck School. Hope spends most of her free time at the barns, taking care of her horses and, as an active meber of the Rocking D Riders 4-H Club, loves to expand on her horsemanship skills and knowledge.

She is excited to represent the community of Waitsburg, and Waitsburg Celebration Days, and looks forward to learning how to be the best representative Waitsburg has ever seen. Hope said that she looks forward to meeting other courts on the road, and at luncheons.

Hostess Ashlyn Brooks is the 9-year-old daughter of Steven and Michelle Brooks. She is currently in 4th grade at Waitsburg Elementary, and loves all things horses. She started riding when she was just two! If she isn't on the road for rodeos, she, too is at the barns with Hope and their 4-H leader, Shelli Bryant. Ashlynn is in her second year as a member of the Rocking D Riders club.

Ashlyn said that she is excited to pair her love for horses with her love for her hometown, and represent the 2022 Waitsburg Celebration Days. She looks forward to learning and growing through her experience!

Join Hostess Ashlyn and Hostess Hope on May 20-22, for three days of fun. Friday night kicks off with the Sunset Cruise ATV Ride, where the hostesses will be offering desserts by donation.

Saturday morning starts bright and early with the Kiddie Parade, followed immediately by the Main Street Parade. A classic car show, live music, and the Burgers, Bands, and Brews will take up all of Saturday, with Sunday wrapping the weekend up with Cowboy Church and a Soapbox Derby.
