Fargo’s Shin Kicking Contest to pit the best of the best against each other!

Fargo, ND – The Fargo Summer Games will once again bring folks together from all Fargo neighborhoods to compete for pride and the respect of the community.

This year’s Fargo Summer Games, which will be held in Island Park, are expected to be bigger and better than ever, which isn’t saying much because last year many thought they sucked.

Organizers who have been drinking coffee around the clock have come up with ten different events to make sure there is something for everyone.

Event #1: Fargo Freak Parade is where everyone will parade down Broadway to Island Park dressed in their best crazy clothes. Awards will be given for the best outfits.

Event #2: Tree Swing Challenge is for anyone under 200 pounds to swing out trying to achieve maximum distance before hopefully falling into a pile of hay.

Event #3: Body Bag Relay is a repeat from last year in which contestants are zipped up into a full body bag and blindly try to hop to the finish line.

Event #4: Drone Domination will determine which of all the drone operators will be the last drone flying!

Event #5: Multi-Peril Crap Shoot is obviously trap shooting buffalo chips while being distracted by people hitting you with nerf worms.

Event #6: Beer Drinking Races for adults only is a combination of an old-fashioned beer drinking contest while racing around Island Park.

Event #7: Adult Insult Contest is exactly what is sounds like: Contestants holding a microphone take turns insulting each other with the winner being chosen by crowd noise.

Event #8: Peacock Roundup is a favorite event for kids of all ages. Children will try to catch as many peacocks in a large fenced-in area before the siren goes off.

Event #9: Round Square Dance – Fargo will attempt to break the world record for the largest circular square dance ever, so everyone will need to participate in this event.

Event #10: Shin Kicking Contest! This is the event that everyone is waiting for. The best shin kickers from each neighborhood’s qualifying rounds will be vying for the right to say they kicked the shin out of all their opponents.

Let the Fargo Summer Games begin! Watch for more details from event organizers as to the specific date and times for your events.
