The Chautauqua Days celebration in Forest Park was full of smiles. Cherry Coen and granddaughters cheer on their turtle in the the turtle race.
The children stayed cool on the hot afternoon with a water balloon fight using the balloons leftover from the water balloon toss during the Chautauqua Days celebration. Other games included the three-legged race and frog-leaping contest.
Face painting was one of the more popular places at the festival. Forest Park was buzzing with activity as the City Band played a patriotic concert and their was a free watermelon feed prior to the fireworks show.
