MInnow races at Ortonville's Creekfest

At Ortonville's Creekfest, the minnow races were one of the creek appreciation events. They took pvc pipe, sliced it in half lengthwise to make two racing tubes. Then they filled them with water and placed one minnow in each to race to the other end. Of course, the minnows didn't always race to the other end, a couple went back to the beginning. It was cool though. The Creekfest celebration continues through Sunday, with a carnival and ferris wheel by M-15 and South St. and activity booths and food downtown.

 Kearsley Creek was full
and moving fast after all the rain.
