The Fourth Annual Tingley Memorial Park Celebration brought hundreds of people to the small community on a picture-perfect weather day on a Sunday afternoon and evening.
The Ringgold County Cattlemen grilled hamburgers and served over 600 burgers prior to pie and ice cream being served.
Hoover Angus of Tingley sponsored the homemade ice cream contest, splitting $550 in prize money between the winners.
Placing first in the “Anything Goes” ice cream contest was Tony Mercer with his Maple ice cream.
Second went to John Overholtzer with Black Raspberry; third was Tony Mercer with Apple Crisp.
In the Vanilla category, Debbie Shields placed first, Ann Iannotta second, and Brian Wimer third.
Five hundred dollars in prize money was also given away in the Jenny Tull Memorial Pie Contest sponsored by the Tull Family of Tingley.
The contest had two categories, One Crust Pies and Two Crust Pies.
Placing in the One Crust category were: first place Janet Wasteney with her Marshmallow Chocolate Nut Pie, second to Gary Wurster with his Coconut Custard, third to Sue Richards with her Coconut Custard, and fourth to Janet Wasteney with her Macaroon.
In the Two Crust category, Connie Richard won first place with her Peach Pie, Melinda Weeda placed second with her Cherry Pie and third with her Sugar Free Apple Pie, and Cathy McGahuey placed fourth with her Strawberry Rhubarb Pie.
After pie contest winners were announced, the top two pies in each class were auctioned off, bringing in $4,300 to go towards maintenance and upkeep of the Tingley Memorial Park.
Attendees enjoyed the sounds of the Carey Crowson Trio in the park, and Roger Burger provided entertainment at the tennis court.
The Show & Shine Car Show brought in well over 100 vehicles of all types, with nearly as many tractors as cars. Kids entertainment included a petting zoo with several species of farm animals, face painting, as well as a nickel and quarter rush.
