We were able to participate in the Sweetheart days events with a parade float and helping with the Dachshund Derby in the park after the parade. A collection of people came downtown to see the parade and support the town.
Each year the town puts on our local Sweetheart days event. On a Tuesday afternoon the people of Hackensack and the yearly tourists gather for a parade and time in the park, including the kids fishing contest in the morning and the dog races after the parade. The events include more than just Tuesday, with fireworks, fundraisers, and food all week long.
