Friends of Frying Pan Park, a local park in Herndon, will host its first NASCOW race next Friday (Oct. 16)
This event will race 11 of the park’s cows in efforts to replace revenues lost by the COVID-19-related cancellation of the park’s annual Farm Harvest Days fundraiser, the event ad said.
“Farm Harvest Days usually bring in 8,000 people per day,” said Yvonne Johnson, Manager of Friends of Frying Pan Park. “Due to COVID-19, we found a different way to generate revenue to support the farm and park.”
The cows that will race are of different ages from nine-months to four-years-old:
- Bandit (Age: 1)
- Brandy (Age: 3)
- Evee (Age: 3)
- Florence (Age: 2)
- Guinness (Age: 9 months)
- Helene (Age: 2)
- Hokie (Age: 3)
- Marybelle (Age: 4)
- Rain (Age: 3)
- Skipper (Age: 9 months)
- Smokey (Age: 1)
The race will be videotaped and aired online.
Sponsors for the NASCOW race can use this form to pick their cow and donate. So far the park has raised $8,000 of its $10,000 goal.
