Twenty-six families competed in five age divisions - 3 to 5, 6 to 8, 9 to 11, 12 to 14 and 15 to 17 during the fun-filled afternoon on November 24.
All participants received a medal, and first place finishers in each division were given trophies.
The winners in each division were Javon Langston (3 to 5), Iyannah Young (6 to 8), Niyah Ensley (9 to 11), Ilhani Young (12 to 14) and Laa-neisha Jones (15-17).
