Gettin' zany with zucchini
The first-ever Pine River Zany Zucchini Street Festival gave new life to an abundant vegetable with a bland reputation.
Events ranged from a zucchini cook-off to "Frog Hop" races and a street dance. For those with ingenuity, there was even a "Zucchini Zinging" event, where teams competed with homemade tools to launch zucchinis long distances. Brandon Horton of Pine River took home the prize at the zinging event for hurling a zuke 251 feet with his slingshot cannon.
