cool temperatures, no wind, and an open road -
over the quiet streets of East Aurora.
There was a race for all family members.
Shown here is the first heat of the Power Wheels Motor Cross Race for ages 3-7.
Also contested was the One Mile Fun Run for ages 5-11
and the Tiny Tot Trot 50-yard dash for ages 2-5.
