Children compete in pedal pull during kids day

Wednesday was Kids Day at the Mecosta County Agricultural Free Fair and one of the staples of the day was the pedal pull, during which young competitors pedaled with all their might while pulling a weighted wagon. Ryan Kaye was one of the first children in the 5 to 6 age group to make complete a “full pull,” reaching the cones at the end of the lane. (Pioneer photos/Meghan Gunther-Haas)

After completing a full pull alongside a handful of other boys in his age group, Wyatt Wirt competes in a pedal-off to see who would win first, second and third places.
