WOLCOTT, Ind. (WLFI) – Friday was day two the 46th annual Wolcott Summer Festival. Highlights of the festival included the frog jumping contest and live music.

The day began with the Lions Club Pancake-Sausage Breakfast at 7 a.m. Later in the morning, there was a car and antique tractor show.

Organizers said there were about 100 cars participating in this year’s event, which made it one of the largest they have ever had.

Jim Anker has lived in Wolcott for about two decades and took part in the antique tractor show. He and his family members brought eight of the 40 tractors on display.

“Just try to help the Fourth of July deal here in town and help get bigger. The first year, we had about 15 tractors. This year we have 40. There’s a lot of farmers in this area and they like to look at old tractors,” said Anker.

The fireworks show is Friday night around 10 p.m.
