A great event for a wonderful cause! How often can you see local strongmen pulling truck tires, swinging a sledge hammer, prowler pushing and much more? Free admission, free food, local businesses, raffle prizes...all proceeds go to Loaves & Fishes Community Pantry. I've volunteered there, it's a life saver for those in need.
