This Saturday, August 8, downtown Leonardtown will be having their annual Beach Party. Mayor Dan Burris and the other Commissioners have done a wonderful job invigorating the Leonardtown region and this is another example of fun things to do locally.

This year there is a new event that should be hilariously fun. Big Larry’s Eatery and Comics will be having their first hot dog eating contest. There are prizes to be had and dogs to be consumed so bring your camera and your appetite.

In that same area, Foundation 4 Heroes will have a whole cast of characters there like; Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Captain America, Spiderman and THOR, because they are raising money for a local, little girl named Teagyn, who suffers with a disease the causes her skin to come off very easily.

F4Heroes is our local 501c.3 nonprofit organization that volunteers their time in the community to speak with school children, inspire children in hospitals, and visit and thank the Wounded Warriors for protecting our country and the sacrifices they have made protecting our freedom.

Also at the Beach Party will be the running of the balls where you have a chance to have your ball win the downhill race and win some cash.

There will be face painting, the amazing Balloon Nerd, a moon bounce, tug of war, beach volleyball, the fire truck hose down and much more.

The 25th Hour Band will be rockin the plaza and the weather is supposed to be fantastic. We sure hope to see you this Saturday from 4 – 9pm in downtown Leonardtown for this awesome event. There are no sharks at the Leonardtown Beach so come out, relax and enjoy.
