From a bike race, poker run, 86 registered Mitcarllshow,ty chalk art challenge, art and wine walk and a street dance, there was always something going on for everyone to enjoy.

A kids pit stop was full of fun activities throughout the day and the paint a truck event and bounce house were popular spots for the children to hang out at.

Emergency acksmith and corn shelling demonstrations held the crowd captive and numerous food vendors and a flea market booths gave everyone options on shopping opportunities.
