11th Annual Tomato Roll

Join us for this year’s ‘Tomato Roll’ that kicks off the Old Shawnee Day Parade on Saturday, June 2nd at 9:30am. Be a part of an ever-growing event that you, your family and your business can enjoy. As people gather and settle in to watch the parade, a large bucket loader will move into position at Nieman Road and Johnson Drive. On cue, a thousand red rubber ‘tomatoes’ will be released from the loader to roll and bounce their way through several fun obstacles, down Nieman Road. The ‘tomatoes’ are then corralled and collected at the bottom of the hill where the first three winning ‘tomatoes’ will be awarded exciting prizes. The ‘tomatoes’ for this event are sold in advance and on the day of the parade at two for $5, or ten for $20. Call to purchase your tickets & enter for your chance at one of the three fabulous prize packages, (913) 248-2360.
