Bristow Fun Days celebrated

Bethany Carson


    Bristow Fun Days kicked off with a running start Saturday morning with the Bristow America 5K and featured a flea market, parade, kids’ games, and Prairie Tractor Pullers Mini Rods, a street dance, and plenty of good food before culminating with an antique tractor and pickup pull on Sunday.
    The 5K run/walk had a good turnout in its first year, with 47 people registered. First place went to Avery Boos, followed by Peter Miller in second place, who sprinted to the finish just ahead of Gary Abbas (third place).
    “The weather was picture perfect…” said Noreen Wiegmann. “We thank everyone that participated and look forward to next year’s Bristow America 5K.”
            The parade featured Grand Marshals Wilbur and Greta Cordes, Miss Bristow Mariah Lewis, State Senator Amanda Ragan, the Bristow Volunteer Fire Department (which hosts the event), the Butler County Sheriff and Emergency Management, veterans holding the colors high, tractors, semis, go-karts, emergency vehicles from surrounding communities, local businesses and community organizations, and plenty of candy for everyone.
