Pioneer Day will be celebrated in the Eustace town square Saturday, Sept. 30, 2017, from 8 a.m. to midnight.

The celebration starts with a Dutch Oven Cooking Dessert Contest at 8.m. A parade begins at 10 a.m., and there will be a pet contest at 11:30 a.m. with awards for best pet, best costume, best trick and best personality.

There will be vendors with crafts and food and drinks, games, contests to include a talent show, watermelon toss, toe sack races, three-legged races, horseshoe pitching, dominoes and pie-throwing at city officials. There will also be a pie and cake auction.

The talent show will begin at 3 p.m.

A cakewalk will be hosted by the Eustace High School Band at 10:30 a.m., and a pizza-eating contest starts at noon. Both will take place in the town square gazebo.

Music by the John Allen Band begins at 8 p.m. for a street dance in the square.

Eustace formerly celebrated Pioneer Day in June, but city officials moved it to September to take advantage of cooler weather.
