The Great Ball Race Raffle – Grand Prize $1000

Great Ball Race

Race will be held during the Johnny Appleseed Festival  on Saturday, September 29, 2018 at 3PM on Brink Street, Downtown Crystal Lake.  Get ready for some entertainment and FUN!

In addition to the $1,000 grand prize, runner-ups will receive fun merchandise or gift certificates from participating businesses. Winner need not be present to win.

 

Here’s how the Great Ball Race works:

  • Purchase a numbered raffle ticket. Brightly colored plastic balls will be numbered to correspond with the numbers on the raffle tickets.
  • These balls will then be released and “rolled” down Brink Street with the fastest balls winning prizes for their owners.
  • Race will be held during the Johnny Appleseed Festival on Saturday, September 29, 2018 at 3PM on Brink Street, Downtown Crystal Lake.
  • In addition to the $1,000 grand prize, runner-ups will receive fun merchandise or gift certificates from participating businesses. Winner need not be present to win.

ENTERTAINMENT
Watch for our giant stilt-walking juggling scarecrow who will be roaming around all afternoon.  The scarecrow will put on a special performance immediately following the Great Ball Race on Brink Street.  You won’t want to miss the fun!
