January 16, 2020 – Fort Wayne Parks and Recreation will host Winterval 2020 on Saturday, January 25, in downtown Fort Wayne. This year, a new event joins the full day of activities as Salomon Farm Park presents a Farm Hand Competition at Hop River Brewing Company, 1515 N Harrison St, just north of Promenade Park. Participants can try their hand at the lasso, tractor tire flips, tossing straw bales, and other feats of strength and skill, with prizes awarded to the top finalists.

This event will also be a fundraiser for Salomon Farm Park, as Hop River will be donating a portion of beverage sales to the park. Registration begins at 4 p.m. and the entry fee for competitors is $15. Competitions will take place from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. and the event is free for spectators.
