MCBAIN — Things didn’t go exactly as planned for McBain Heritage Days, but thanks to the hard work of organizers, city officials and a school administration the three days of activities still took place.
McBain Heritage Days started on Friday with a pulled pork dinner and ended on Sunday with a worship service.
Saturday was a day full of activities planned for Main Street, but some bad storms made that a little challenging.
So the bike parade, face painting, cornhole tournament and merchant drawing were moved to McBain Rural Agricultural School, according to the McBain Heritage Days Facebook page.
And people still came out to participate in the activities. Ten teams entered the cornhole tournament, with team Drew Bronkema and Emmitt Bronkema winning it and $100. Sheryl Sikkema was also there with a pie that won her the homemade pie baking contest, said organizer Heidi Heuker.
On the Facebook page, organizers expressed thanks to everyone who helped make the celebration possible and most of all for the people who came out and made it a great day. By their count, there were around 500 people in attendance.
“Did we get to do everything we planned as we planned it ... nope!‘ One organizer said on the page. “But, we did our best ... and I think the kids had fun, and that’s always the goal!‘
