Running of the Meatballs

Running of the Meatballs is a unique and hilarious downhill race of thousands of “meatballs” (brown painted golf balls).

It is not only fun to watch but an important fundraiser for the museum’s ongoing historic building renovation projects. Tickets are $5 apiece or $20 for 5 and can be purchased in the gift shop or from a roaming ticket seller before the race that starts shortly before the Taco Daze parade on Saturday, Sept. 7th, 2019.  The meatballs are released and roll wildly down Oak Hill Road into the chute. Prizes are awarded to the first 10 balls down the hill.
