Due to the new addition to the hall, the Kiddie Car Merry-Go-Round got moved to the other side of the lawn near Norma Schumacher's house.
The little merry-go-round was a hit with the youngsters.
The Barrel Train has a near full load with Josh Frei doing the driving. Shane Stubbers took over later in the day.
The Bouncy Castle was busy nearly all day long.
A couple of young men try out the sumo suits.
There was still quite a line at 9:50 a.m. Breakfast was scheduled to be served until 10 a.m. but they made sure all the people in line got served.
Street Sports started with foot races for various age groups.
In the adult foot race they had to go both down and back as you can see them making the turn.
Next up were the 3-legged races.
The youngest winners in the 3-legged race who managed to make it without falling even once.

The wheelbarrow race leaders take a spill.
A new event this year was the leapfrog race.
This young lady misjudged her egg and took it on her forehead. Fortunately she wasn't hurt.
Another egg bites the dust as her partner tossed it a little too high and hard.
Kyle Holthaus catches the egg from his brother in law Bryce Stigum. After this catch there were 3 sets of competitors left but all 3 went out on the next toss making for a 3-way tie.

Eric Nuxoll and his sons Ambrose, middle, and Sebastian, bottom, were the top 3 finishers in the open group. Ambrose and Sebastian both edged out their father.
The final Street Sports event was a Beer Run for the adults. Youg to a beer no mater where you finished so Phil Nuxoll and his son, daughter and son-in-law decided to have some fun and leapfrogged it.
The raffle drawing concluded the day's events.
