The best contest ever!

Brendon Neff puts his heart and soul ... and face into Thursday evening’s ice cream eating contest at the Tiskilwa Pow Wow festivities. Other events included a kids’ tractor pull, the Lil’ Spurs Rodeo Queen Pageant and music by The Generics. Keeping with tradition, the annual Pow Wow festival also included the 13th annual Lil’ Spurs Rodeo on Friday, a parade and classic car show on Saturday morning, and a community church service on Sunday.
