High-flying fun at Ole Oppe Fest
A bright sunny day added to the fun of Ole Oppe Fest early Sunday afternoon.
It was Kids/Famiy Day at the event, which is sponsored by the Alexandria Jaycees. Festivities took place Friday through Sunday along Second Avenue near the Central Lakes Trail.
Activities included a vendor fair, emergency vehicles on display, bouncy child climb, bungee trampoline, free music, beer garden, car/motorcycle show and a Wing Ding contest for the best sauce.
The Alexandria Jaycees are looking for more members to join the organization, which seeks to "empower young people to create positive change." The club sponsors many events throughout the year, including ditch clean-ups; Pitch, Hit and Run; Relay for Life team; Sandbox Fill; and the Jingle Bells Telethon.
