And finally, the many volunteers who helped promote the event: WTRE, the Greensburg Daily News, the Chamber of Commerce and Decatur County Tourism; prepare for the event: Downtown Merchants, Greensburg Fire

It takes the efforts of many to make an event successful, and there are always more to thank, but our hopes are that those who lent a hand will be happy with the notion that they helped to start something unique for the community, something fun for the whole family, and something that will be an attraction for years to come.

We thank you all, and look forward to next year. (Teams, start working on your quads.) Ê Ê Ê Ê Ê Ê
