The city of Avon is celebrating the 30th anniversary of their Spunktacular Days town festival. This year festivities will be held on June 18th and 19th, and the theme this year is Superheroes of the Pandemic, saluting those who were on the frontlines getting us through 2020.

The fun has already started with a medallion hunt through town with clues being posted daily at various local businesses like Avon Quick Mart, Casey's, Central Minnesota Credit Union, and more.

Friday is when the festival kicks it into high gear with the 3rd Annual Car Show in Wobegon Park being hosted by the Avon Lions Club. There will also be kids games and a clown that afternoon to keep the little ones entertained. The Food Court will be opening Friday at 5 pm serving up fair food favorites, and the Natheology Band will be playing in Wobegon Park from 8:30 - 11:30 pm.

The whole family can enjoy a ski show Saturday afternoon at Middle Spunk Beach, and a parade through town at 7 pm. If you are looking to dance the night away afterwards, Pandemic is playing from 8:30 - 11:30 Saturday night.
