According to the Winfield Chamber of Commerce, Mule Day has once again been cancelled due to Alabama's COVID-19 public health emergency. The chamber regrets that this action is necessary, but felt that this was the best course of action considering the increase in COVID-19 cases in the area. It is our hope that the festival can be resumed in 2022.
Statement from Dana Peoples, Chamber President: "We greatly regret that Mule Day 2021 has been cancelled. COVID-19 continues to pose a serious public threat to the State of Alabama and to our community. On August 13, 2021, Governor Kay Ivey declared that a state public health emergency now exists."
"The Winfield Chamber of Commerce board of directors met on August 16th and voted unanimously to cancel this year’s event scheduled for September 24-25."
"The Ivan K. Hill Disc Golf Course is the first course in Winfield and a great location for new and experienced players alike. With holes weaving through the baseball fields, through trees, and around the entire park, Ivan K. Hill Disc Golf Course will challenge any type of player.
With a total distance of over 6,000 ft and out of bounds on nearly every hole, this tournament quality course will bring in players from all over the North Alabama area for a unique disc golf experience. As a health benefit this course will have you walk nearly 2.5 miles for every round!"
Below is a diagram of the new course.
