Volksfest continues today at Germannia Maennerchor. It's the organization's biggest celebration of the year and this afternoon it was all about the kids. Games, carnival booths, and contests kicked off the last day of Volksfest. Kids were allowed at the primarily 21 and over event from 11 a.m to 2 p.m.  Makailah Jones won the German costume contest for her age bracket. She tells us she comes to Volksfest year after year.

"Just because it's fun, you get to dress up, and be somebody that you're not", Jones said.

Today's kid friendly events also included the chicken dance; a big favorite among young people. The beer garden along with traditional German food continues into late tonight.
