Sweltering heat and humidity couldn’t stop scores of children from attending Saturday’s Kids’ Day event Jenkins City Park. In the photo above, young and old alike watched as a team of professional wrestlers entertained the crowd.
Breanna McKenzie of Jenkins had an extra hat in her hand in case she lost the one she was wearing.
With the outside temperature at 95 degrees, it might have been hot in this inflatable bounce house, but that didn’t matter to Sarah Polly and Lynsey Anderson of Jenkins who were having fun while jumping up and down.
Jacob Collins of Whitesburg looked on intently as the pro wrestlers took turns pinning each other to the mat.
Leeah Marie Yeary, third from right, posed in front of a camera while Megan Pigman, a summer intern with the Letcher County Sheriff’s Department, entered the information into a computer needed to create a child identification card.
Balloons like this one being given to two-year-old Alexis Ritchie of Jenkins was one of many free items available to kids.
