Kids Fun Day enjoyed by many

HANGING ROCK –– Now in his fourth term, Hanging Rock Mayor Chris Davidson started a tradition that’s still going strong. Hanging Rock Kids Fun Day took over Main Street field Saturday, as children and families gathered to take part.

“We’ve been doing this for about 14 years,” Davidson said as he grilled up hot dogs. “And everything is totally free.”

The event had several inflatables for the children, live music entertainment by local band Derailed, police cruiser rides, hayrides and door prizes.

Two bikes were also given away to a boy and girl in three different age groups.

Davidson thanked all of the sponsors for the event, which included the Laidback Bar and Grill, Bob and Carol Goldcamp, Hanging Rock Resources, Walden’s Insurance, Charlie’s Tires, Pat Schilling, William Dickens, BWC Trucking, Kinder’s Insurance, OP and CMIA Local 132, Arrick’s Propane, Greg and Sharon Pennington, Kern’s Plumbing, Ironton Municipal Court and Common Pleas candidate Judge O. Clark Collins, Republican County Commission candidate Christopher Collins, Iron City Hardware and Hop’s Carryout.

“It’s a way to give back to the community and show appreciation for the kids,” Davidson said.
