This past Saturday, June 3, the Stettler Regional Early Childhood Development hosted a fun-filled ‘Amazing Mini Race’ at West Stettler Park with a complex variety of outdoor activities, races, nature scavenger hunts, and fun challenges for kids and adults alike.

More than 30 participants had a go, with seven teams taking part too.

The sunny weather was perfect, as families enjoyed time in nature, and enjoyed a bit of friendly competition.

It took over 40 minutes for the first-place winner to complete the race, and there was a podium and medal ceremony, and prize draw at the end of the race.

Participants scavenged for items such as pine cones, three leaf clovers, varieties of leaves, and items of different texture.

There was also a three-legged race, egg-on-spoon racing, and wheelbarrow racing. Participants also had the option of trying a nature smell challenge, eating a sardine, and building an airplane.

From May 29 to June 3, the Stettler Regional Early Childhood Development Committee and community partners hosted daily events during Stettler Gets Wild week, as part of the Alberta-wide Get Outside and Play Week.

Events throughout the week included ball play at the Train Park, building bug motels at the Library, Wild Time Play at the Pirate Park, and a picnic and hike at Potters Seep. The Amazing Mini Race was the final event of the week. All events had great attendance, and the weather was fantastic all week.
