Byron Days 2009

Byron Center, Michigan held its annual summer celebration this weekend.  Most of the events were Saturday, starting with a 5 K run and a parade.  Never having been to the parade, I was surprised how popular it was.  Big crowds and it lasted for about 45 minutes.  

A lot of other events, things you normally see in these kind of events.  A lot of sports competitions, basketball, softball and skateboarding.  The skateboarding event was new this year, and I spent a lot of time there.  There was also tractor pulls and horse pulls.  I caught the end of the horse pulls and the teams of two horses were pulling a sledge loaded with 6,000 pounds.  The winning team ended up pulling 6,500 pounds.  

There were a lot of things for the kids to do, as well as a dunk tank and food.  It ended up with fireworks.
