The 2nd Annual Cyclones in the Outfield was held at Martin Creek Park in Edgerton this last weekend.
The two day event is a fundraiser for students and families of Edgerton Elementary hosted by the City of Edgerton, Johnson County Sheriff’s Office and the Edgerton Mayor’s Christmas Tree Fund.
The funds are used for enrollment fees, school supplies and more.
Don Roberts, Edgerton Mayor, said all grants go back directly to the kids.
“It’s a worthwhile thing,” he said.
Brad Johnson, Johnson County deputy, started the event last year.
Friday night Deputies won a softball game against the Johnson County Fire District 1 Firefighters for the second year in a row.
The game started at 7p.m. after a parking lot tailgate with burgers and hotdogs for a donation and yard games for kids.
A raffle for concerts at Azura Amphitheater in Bonner Springs or private lessons at Lewis Indoor Athletics also took place. Raffle tickets were $1 each, 6 for $5 or 25 for $20.
Saturday in Downtown Edgerton a Cruise-In was held for cars, trucks and motorcycles to drive down Nelson Street from 6 to 8pm. There was a food truck and DJ for attendees. A drive-in style movie showing of Ghostbusters:Afterlife at Martin Creek Park was held after.
Several city staff and council members were in attendance supporting the weekend’s events.
The event coincided with the Edgerton City-Wide Weekend Garage Sale.
