PHOTOS: See Evart celebrate the Fourth of July, sesquicentennial

EVART — Evart held several activities Saturday to celebrate the Fourth of July, as well as the city's sesquicentennial. Activities included a cornhole tournament, pie-eating contest, car show, bird house painting, and a historical tour of Evart.

The day's activities were planned by director of the Downtown Development Authority, Todd Bruggema.

"We got a beautiful day. I'm pretty happy with it. We got a nice turnout for the cornhole tournament, 16 or 18 teams," Bruggema said.

Bruggema said the farmer's market was also packed in the morning, and he was pleased with the amount of vehicles at the car show.
