The 20th Rutland Park Society will host their 53rd annual May Days. It seems to be getting bigger every year. So let’s jump in and tell you some of the details so you can bring your whole family to one of the events.

One of the signature events is the Parade which will happen on Saturday, May 19th. Here is a map of the route and schedule for the parade.

Westcoast amusements will also be set up for the duration of the event. I recently met local Photographer Scott Dueck and he was kind enough to share some of his pictures taken at West Coast Amusements last year.
