July 25, 2017 – West Bend, WI – WOW, what a week it has been at Regner Park. West Bend’s jewel continues to impress year after year. The excitement started Saturday morning when over 1500 youth set an attendance record and took over the park along with thousands of other family members there in support. The Dirty Ninja Mud Run for Kids™ has grown from a one-year trial into a major event this community looks forward to each summer. City staff, over 80 volunteers and the Friends of Parks & Recreation organization ensured that each Ninja left exhausted and sufficiently muddy. The balance of Saturday was filled with fun, food, swimming, music and refreshments. Planning for 2018 is already underway and the Mud Run/Regner Fest date has been set for July 14, 2018.
Wednesday evening marked the mid-point of our summer with the annual German Night. Brats, Beer and great music enhanced a beautiful evening at the Silver Lining Stage. The evening also included the 5th anniversary of the Mayor & Council’s appreciation evening. Thanks goes out to city staff and the hundreds of volunteer who annually donate thousands of hours to our great City of West Bend.
A final Thank You to all of the citizens and businesses of West Bend. Since 1935, you have made Regner Park and our entire park system a priority. Your passion, involvement and dedication to our parks helps all of us at City Hall continue the investment in our nationally recognized park system. One-half of the Summer of ’17 is still ahead of us. Have fun, be safe and see you at the Park!
Mayor Kraig K. Sadownikow
