Festival Goers Take on Stilt-Walking Contest at Alpenfest

Posted: Updated:

It’s been another great day at Alpenfest.

There were diaper derby races, a juggling competition, and even hula hoop dance off on Thursday.

One of the events that brought some heightened competition was the stilt-walking contest.

People of all ages got up on stilts and raced to the finish.

It’s a tough task but we talked with one winner who says stilt walking is almost second nature for him

“Since I was three, I have been doing it with my mom, and have won every year. My mom always told me, right step, left step all the way to the finish line,” Brenden Kornacki said.

These events are just the beginning to another night of fun at Alpenfest.

Many are still looking forward to the parade here on Saturday.
