(STURGIS) – Sturgis Fest continues its week long run with tonight's annual Family Night activities in Franks Park.

There will be plenty of free kids' activities including inflatables, balloon artists, face painting and so much more. There will also be food for sale during the evening.

The cornerstone of Family Night is the annual vintage baseball game between the Sturgis Biscuits and the Elkhart County Railroaders. The idea for the game came from Rob Sisson who made the initial contact three years ago with the Railroaders about coming up for the game which has continued on since that time.

Sisson says while there are many similarities between today's baseball and the vintage game, where are some different rules and traditions under the 1860's rules the teams play by. ...... {LISTEN}.

Sisson says baseball, no matter what era, has a rhythm that is unique and appreciated by the players and the fans. ...... {LISTEN}.

Family Night starts at 5 PM with the baseball game starting at 6:30 PM. There is no charge to attend, just simply bring a lawn chair or blanket and enjoy the evening.
