Payson Golden Onion Days Adding Four New Events

The 2019 Payson Golden Onion Days on Aug. 9-Sept. 2 will have fourbrnew events this year that event director, Janeen Dean says will be great forbrthe community. There’s a night golf tournament, skateboarding competition,brpickleball tournament, and a duck race.


The pickleball tournament is going to be at 11:00 a.m. on Aug. 31brand will be on the new pickleball courts at Memorial Park. Dean said that thebrcity understands that this is a fairly new sport to many, which is why onbrAugust 1 at 6:00 p.m., a clinic will be held along with the ribbon-cuttingbrevent. The city hopes that the clinic and tournament will allow residents tobrlearn a new sport and that the new courts will be a good resource to thebrcommunity.


The Great Peteetneet Duck Race will be held at 4:00 p.m. onbrSeptember 2 at Memorial Park, and will serve as a fundraiser for the historicbrPeteetneet Museum. According to museum volunteer, Doug Huff, the museum reliesbrsolely on private donations, city funding, and fundraisers.


The duck race will serve as an official fundraiser for thebrmuseum. 


Residents can purchase ducks at the museum for $5 each, with thebrsixth duck free. The ducks will be numbered and registered at the museum andbrput inside a plastic container to be kept safe until the day of the race. Whenbrthe race starts, the ducks will be released down the creek that runs throughbrthe park. The owners of the first four ducks to cross the finish line willbrbe able to pick from four prizes donated by local companies.


“It is fundraisers like these that help keep the building up andbrrunning, and the museum open for the public,” Huff said. “The Peteetneet Museumbris a great resource for the community because it represents the history of thebrcity. It lets people know what schools used to look like a long time ago, andbrit showcases a lot of history for people to see. It is a great building we hopebrto preserve for a long time.”
