I n spite of a hot, sultry Fourth of July, about 65 Granville youth turned out to compete in the Granville Lions annual Kids Day event, a field day competition held at the Little League Field.

Two fields were the scene of non-stop action starting at 9:30 a.m. Kids ages four to seven took part in events such as the long jump, a backward race, crab race, balloon race and the 40-yard dash. Those ages eight to 13 did similar events, but added 50-yard hurdles, a sack race, and a 440-yard run.

All the competitors held up well under the heat of the morning, not fading until the final 440-yard run.

“We were very pleased that so many children, parents and Lions Club members participated in Kids Day,” said Granville Lions President Jay Niles.  “The children had a lot of fun joining in old-fashioned field day events such as the sack race and three legged race. It was a great way to follow up the concert and fireworks and start the summer.”

Every participant received a free T-shirt, those who placed received ribbons and everyone went home with a coupon for a free ice cream cone at Stewart’s.

Here are the results:
