The messy catch-a-pig contest gave way to a variety of activities Friday night at the Moffat County Fairgrounds, as Family Fun Night hit the 2013 Moffat County Fair.
From cake decorating to tire rolling races, Family Fun Night had something for everyone at the Fair. There were stilts and buckets to walk on, stick horses to run down a course, a dart game involving popping balloons and all the inflatable arenas that have graced the fair most of the week.
Pepper Rhyne was all over the fun night, including teaching some other children how to use a lasso.
“I like the games here,” Rhyne said.
A large contingent from elementary school students up to adults took part in a cake decorating contest, with cakes and decoration supplies courtesy of decorator extraordinaire Kandee Dilldine, of KS Kreations Craft Store and Bakery. Some took the decoration more seriously, with an artful vision in place, while other contestants just loaded their cakes up with everything they were excited about eating later.
The fun night followed up a successful pig-catching contest, which saw a large host of are children walking away from the fairgrounds arena with a full, squealing burlap sack.
Brady Springer and Brayden Peterson had helped grease the pigs before the contest began, and said it had gone well.
“There were a lot of kids out there, it was good,” Springer said. “Happy to be rid of all the grease we got on us earlier.”
