The community of Kennebec celebrated 101 years of Agriculture Saturday with games, food and entertainment. Despite the fact that numerous other events were going on around the area over the weekend, many took in some or all the festivities at Kennebec on Saturday.

The celebration started with a Ranch Rodeo Friday night at the Kennebec Arena. Eight local teams, many consisting of females and young adults, participated in the events. The Christensen Land & Cattle team, Charlie Gran, Laddy Christensen, Blue Fink, and CY Christensen, took first place in team points.

Saturday various ag related vendors set up on Kennebec’s Main Street. Donelle Christensen, Jacey Miller, and Kasey Miller were the winners in the chicken poo Bingo game. Kiley Volmer and Tracy Brakke each tied in the rolling pin toss. In addition, there were other games for kids throughout the afternoon.

A free barbecue catered by BJ’s Food Center was served at 5 p.m. at the firehouse. The bleachers were full of spectators as the 20X Beaver Bull Riding featured two rounds of action kicked off with the Jr. bull riding at 6:30 p.m. Local youth riding were Ryder Schweitzer, TC Fredricks, Dylan Madsen, Levi Brakke, and Dawson Jandreau. Taylor Cowan, Ft. Pierre was the only junior bull rider to earn a 6 second ride.
