The track and field events were youth and adult foot races at different lengths, bicycle races, long jump and triple jump.
The heavyweights competition included throwing the hammer, tossing of the caber, shot putt, throwing the weight with a ball and chain, and throwing a 56 lb weight over a bar.
There were also dancing competitions. I really enjoyed watching the children dance.
There was a tent with a “Traders Market” with various items for sale, including beer from a local brewery. There was an entertainment stage during the day. And the market tent was scheduled to have live music all evening. We didn’t stay into the evening because the buses stopped running, AND we had been standing all day. There were no bleachers to sit in. Our muddy feet were tired.
