Event winners received a total of $3,525 in cash prizes.

“The turnout was pretty good considering the weather. We were hoping for more of course but it’s not bad,” said co-organizer Scott Medlock.

A new addition to Summer Smash this year was an outdoor concert on Saturday night. Slick 50 entertained the crowd until 12:45 a.m. at the local Sports Bowl.

West Coast Amusements also provided a midway throughout the event in Sixth Avenue Park.
