Claytor Lake festival on tap for June 13

A play, music, car show and, of course, fireworks are all on tap for the 12th Annual Claytor Lake Festival to be held Saturday, June 13.
This year’s event will celebrate 70 years of lake living.
The event is being coordinated by Claytor Lake State Park, the Fine Arts Center for the New River Valley, the Claytor Lake Festival Committee and Pulaski County Chamber of Commerce.
One of the newer events to join the lineup of activities at this year’s festival will be a presentation of “The King and I” by Wohlfahrt Haus Dinner Theatre in Wytheville.
There also will be a variety of music, including Native American music, storytelling and dance by Mike Jarrell and other local Native Americans. Other local musicians to perform include the Billy Crawford Band, the Rock’n Cruisers, Southern Nights, and Glen Shelton.
The Everett Lee Yearout Jr. Adult/Youth Fishing Tournament and Essay Contest will be held again this year, beginning at 7 a.m. festival day.
The annual car show will include trick and stunt performances by remote controlled airplanes and cars between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Also, the Old Dominion Historical Society Antique Fire Truck Drive will be held at 1 p.m.
The Hensel Eckman YMCA in Pulaski will sponsor its first "adventure run" at Claytor Lake State Park in conjunction with the Claytor Lake Festival on June 13.
The event will include a family and kid-friendly one-mile "fun run," along with a competitive 5k run/walk.
Proceeds from this event will benefit the Hensel Eckman YMCA’s financial assistance program
The one-mile run will begin at 8:30 a.m., in which participants will race along the trails at the state park. Shortly after its conclusion, the 5k will begin at 9 a.m. for runners and 9:10 a.m. for walkers, running along the same trails. The course has been described as a gentle rolling loop with some challenging hills.
Pre-race registration and packet pickup will take place from 7:30 to 8:30 a.m. before the race.
Registration fees for the race will be $15 before June 6 and $20 after and on site. There is no fee for the one mile race; however registration forms are still required. The first 100 pre-registered entrants will receive a race t-shirt.
Awards will be given to all one-mile fun run competitors. The first three overall placers in the men’s and women’s 5k will receive awards, as well as the top three in each age group.
