McNary High School’s seventh annual Blue Day is Saturday, Aug. 18.

The event begins at 8:30 a.m. with a pancake breakfast, $5 for adults and $3 for youth, in the south end zone of the stadium.

While McNary Youth Football teams will scrimmage from 9 to 10:30 a.m., new this year, Keizer Soccer Club will take the field from 10:30 to 11.

“We’ve always done the youth football and that’s great but I think it’s really important that we’re brining some of the other sports in,” said Brad Lomax, football coach and business teacher at McNary.

FBLA students planned the event. Instead of the usual BBQ, food trucks will begin serving lunch at 10:30 a.m.

The new $100,000 scoreboard will be dedicated at 11:15 a.m.

Varsity soccer scrimmages are scheduled for 11:30 and noon. In the gym, McNary’s volleyball teams will scrimmage from noon to 12:45 p.m.

Junior varsity football will then take the field at 1 p.m. followed by varsity at 1:30.

Admission to Blue Day is free.
