Turtle races are held every Thursday, June through August. We will also have races on the Saturday over July 4th weekend and Wenonga Days weekend. Registration begins at 11:00am with the first races starting shortly after.
They are held in the parking lot across from the LACC / Bethel Church building located at 112 Main Street W, just off Lake Avenue in Battle Lake.
We ask for a $2 donation per race. The proceeds go to the Lakes Area Community Center and specifically towards putting on more family friendly events all year long in Battle Lake.
We have turtles available for use or you can bring you own. A local family business helps provide our turtles safely all summer. They go back to their natural habitat when they aren't racing.
Please, no pets other than turtles allowed in the park during the races.
Each individual race takes a few minutes. Depending on how many people we have, the races can last from 30 minutes to two hours. Winners take home fun prizes that have been donated by local businesses!
On most occasions (dependent on volunteers), the LACC will also sell popcorn and t-shirts.
Be sure to follow us on Facebook for any cancellation announcements due to weather or any other unforeseen circumstances.
We hope to see you there!
