Organizers of the 2018 Covered Bridge Days said the weekend’s community festival in Centreville was a success, capped by a parade and square dance that were both well attended.
The two-day event was highlighted by a widely-applauded fireworks show Friday evening. Saturday’s notable attractions included a 5K run and one-mile fun run, a pancake breakfast sponsored by the Centreville Lion’s Club and an ice cream-eating contest.
Forty-five vehicles were part of the old-car/tractor/motorcycle show, an event that raised more than $450 for St. Joseph County Veterans Services.
Winners of the ice cream-eating contest were James Kane of Nottawa in the 8-and-under age group; Jalesa Denys, of Irma, S.C., in the 9- through-17-years age group; and Elena Meadows of Three Rivers claimed the adult age group competition.
The contest was sponsored by Centre Hub Coffee and Tea.
Meanwhile, Mary Stafford and Penny Standish, both of Mendon, won the festival’s scavenger hunt.
