The New Brighton Stockyard Days is a week-long celebration of New Brighton's history in the stockyard industry. The Stockyard Days started in 1981, and it is still going strong today. There are plenty of events at several different venues including a duck race at Creekview Park, a softball tournament at Lion's Park, karaoke qualifying at Adagio's Pizza Factory, and the Antique Car Run that starts in Long Lake Regional Park and goes for 120+ miles. The week starts with a parade and ends with a coronation, and there is much fun to be had in between. There are crafts and merchandise vendors in Long Lake Regional Park, and there will be concessions as well. It's a great place for family and friends to congregate and to celebrate an integral part of New Brighton's history.
