A look back at our Community Carnival!

National Gymnastics Day is an awesome way for all of us to get together and remember what makes the sport so great! At Black Hills Gym, we decided to celebrate with a free carnival. There were a ton of fun events that anyone in our community could come and enjoy!

Our dunk tank was obviously a favorite! Who wouldn’t want the opportunity to plunge their coach in a tank of water??

To satisfy attendees with a sweet tooth, we had a Cake Walk where we gave away some cute and colorful clown cupcakes!

We want to give a huge thanks to our staff and those who came to celebrate this wonderful sport with us. National Gymnastics Day would not have been the same without you!
