Announcers for this year’s contests will be radio’s Tom Ulmer, who will call the races from noon to 2 p.m.; weatherman Reed Yadon, who will announce from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. and auctioneer Steve Hale, who will call races from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.

The day also includes raffles, a bake sale, pull tabs, music and a silent auction, which closes at 5 p.m.

Dinners are $9 for adults and $5 for children 12 and under.
