    Hula Hoop Contest
    Saturday - 1:00 p.m.
    Sunday - 1:30 p.m.

    Everyone grab your tie-dye shirts and your bell-bottom pants and join the hula hoop contest! Give your waistline a workout as you wiggle, spin and turn in a contest to keep your hula hoop up the longest. Age groups: 5 and under, 6 – 10, 11 and up.

    Whipped Pie Bubble Blowing Contest
    Saturday - 2:00 p.m.

    No hands or spoons allowed! Just dive face first into that whipped cream pie! Ages 6 and up compete to be the first to find the bubble gum and blow a bubble. For the 5 and under crowd, find
    the hidden whistle to win!

    Buffalo Chip Throwing
    Saturday - 2:30 p.m.
    Sunday - 2:00 p.m.

    We're bringing back this popular old-time activity for the 50th anniversary of Old Shawnee Days. Accuracy is better than strength, the closest to the bull's eye in each heat is the winner. Don't worry, our buffalo chips are only a facsimile of the real thing! Overhand, underhand, and side-armed throwing styles are allowed. All ages welcome!

    Water Balloon Toss
    Saturday - 3:30 p.m.
    Sunday - 4:00 p.m.

    On a hot day you may not want to win the water balloon toss! Partners will face one another, gently tossing a water balloon back and forth. With each successful catch, the pairs will take a step further away from one another and toss again. The pair who can toss and catch the balloon without it popping from the furthest distance wins! Age groups: 5 and under, 6 – 10, 11 and up.

    Sack Races and Three Legged Races
    Saturday - 4:00 p.m.

    Traditional races are always crowd favorites! Come enjoy some good old fashioned fun! Age groups: 5 and under, 6 – 10, 11 and up.

    Field Games
    Saturday - 4:30 p.m.

    There is something for everyone in field games! You can try to outsmart the "caller" in Four Corners, or you can see if you are the fastest runner in Jail Break--you won't want to miss these games! All ages.

    Turtle Races
    Sunday – 12:00 p.m.

    Bring your fastest turtle to the great annual turtle races! The rules are simple: no age limit on the turtles, no age limit on the human handlers, no entry fees for the races, and no snapping turtles! (Please note – Turtles are not provided. You must bring your own to enter.)

    Relay Races
    Sunday – 2:00 p.m.

    Can you crab walk? Push a greased watermelon quickly? Pass a cup of water over your head without spilling? Then the relay races are for you! Come make some new friends as you compete together in a fun and wild array of relay challenges. Relay teams will be created at the time of the event. All ages.
