Baby Races

Tuesday, June 27th. Registration is during the track meet at 6 PM.

**Moved to Tuesday, June 27th to the Carlisle High School football Stadium. Registration is at 6 PM. Based on the forecast of heavy rains throughout the night and into Saturday morning, the Summerfair Board of Directors has decided to cancel the Craft Show and all related activities scheduled for Saturday on Dickinson’s Rush Campus, with the exception of the Baby Races which will be held as part of the Jim Thorpe Track Meet on Tuesday, June 27th. The Board regrets this decision but feels that the potential damage to Dickinson’s property could be substantial given the forecast.” We hope that you will still be able to find many other Summerfair activities to take advantage of over the remainder of the schedule. Have a baby who isn't walking yet? Enter them in our Baby Race and win a trophy for having the fastest crawler in town! Kiddos have to be under 1 year old.
