Marigold Days Weekend Events
New for 2018
Kasson-Mantorville Lion’s Rubber Duck Regatta
Saturday 11:00AM and 1:00PM
Sunday 3:00PM or after the Grande Parade.
This fun fund raiser was cancelled in 2017 because the water level in the Zumbro River is just too low for the little ducks to float. But we are hoping for better conditions this year.
Registration begins at 8Am on 6th Street.
Car registrants please enter from Highway 57 onto 9th Street and drive south to 6th Street to sign up. This will relieve traffic congestion closer to the show line-up.
Show runs from 10AM until 12:30PM.
Entrants are invited to join the Grande Parade after the show.
Stagecoach 5K Run
Saturday Registration 7:30am Start Time 8:30am
Register for the annual Stagecoach 5K Run at Mantor Field. Registrations are only taken on the day of the race. $15.00 entry fee per runner. Runners will receive a tee shirt, snacks, water & juice after the run and lots of cheering from spectators along the way. Race begins at Mantor Field in northwest Mantorville, ending at the corner of Fifth Street and Clay Street near the Post Office downtown. A new route is planned for this year, to avoid the steep hills in town.

We have 13 Categories for Marigolds and then there are 30 other categories. We have categories for Children’s flower arrangements too. If you have a flower arrangement, we will find a class for it. We accept entries on Friday, Sept. 8th from 4PM to 9PM. They are judged on Saturday morning. Cash prizes are given in the 13 Marigold Categories and ribbons are given in all categories. There is also a Best of Show award chosen from all 43 Categories.
Please come and help to make it a beautiful show.
