With Grand Olde West Days starting Saturday, the event committee is still adding events to entertain attendees.

A 5K run/walk, which had been up in the air due to organization, is a go and will be run by Holistic Health & Fitness.

The run/walk will start at 8 a.m. Monday, beginning with registration at Kinder Professional Building, 595 Russell St.

Pre-registration at Holistic, 420 Breeze St., is $15. Reg-

-istration day of the race is $20.

A big event added to Monday’s street festival is a pie-eating contest.

“It’s something we have always wanted to do, but it just never came to,” said Kandee Dilldine, Grand Olde West Days chair. “I think people will have a lot of fun with it.”

There will be four different age groups for youths 7 to 18 years old and one adult group. The first 10 people in each group will be able to participate.

Registration for the contest runs from 10 to 11 a.m., with the pie eating beginning at noon Monday.

Village Inn of Craig will be donating the pies for the contest. Prizes will be awarded to the winners in each group, and leftover pies will be part of that.

The car show will be part of the street festival Monday.

Entry into the car show is free and open to the public. The cars must be registered starting at 7 a.m. Monday in the 400 block of Yampa Avenue, south of Victory Way.

At 11 a.m., attendees will be able to vote for their favorite car. At 2:30 p.m., the People’s Choice winner will be announced with a $250 award.
