Kids had a fun-filled day on Saturday, September 5, during the 23rd annual U. P. Steam and Gas Engine Association Labor Day Show. Pony rides by Stoney Acres were available all day, as well as a petting zoo provided by Barb Roberts.

The afternoon featured pedal tractor races for children 4-6 years of age sponsored by Ison Equipment. Ison Equipment donated a tractor to be given away. The winner was Samantha Kallman of Escanaba. All children who participated received a John Deere toy tractor, also donated by Ison Equipment.

Following this were the Big Wheel races for children 7-9 years old, sponsored by Wal-Mart. Winners were Ethan Shaver, Menominee, first prize; Kyle Williams, Bark River, second; and Joseph Bickler, Negaunee, third. All children participating in the Big Wheel races won prizes donated by Dominos Pizza, Hardees, Burger King, Wendys,' Family Fun Park, and Lincoln Video.

A drawing held following the Big Wheel races determined the winners of the two Big Wheel bikes donated by Wal-Mart of Escanaba. Winners were Ethan Shaver and Molly Williams.

Bring the whole family for a wonderful time at our 24th show to be held Labor Day weekend, September 4, 5, & 6, at U.P. State Fairgrounds in Escanaba, Michigan.
