Keeping with tradition, the kids division kicked off the Great American Crab Races today (Sunday, 7/10/16).  The kids were predictably enthusiastic over their chances, as shown in this video of the final matchup this afternoon at the Beach Bar.

Up for grabs were a Kindle Fire, Cedar Point tickets or bicycle from McDonald’s.

This community event, now in its 25th year, attracts spectators and participants from Clark Lake and beyond.  Funds raised go to the Clark Lake Spirit Trail, Columbia Athletic Boosters, Napoleon Athletic Boosters and the Napoleon Lions Club.
