More than 50 people attended a Minifest Saturday at Tiny Trails LLC owned by Larry and Deana Olsen in Marion. Enjoying a horse and buggy ride were (top photo, left to right) Emma, 2, their grandmother, Chris Gillespie of Marion, holding Jackson, 3 months, and Alex, 4. The three Gillespie children were visiting from Kansas City, Mo. Guiding the cart was Cathy Martin, who assisted her granddaughter, Cara Martin, with the activities. “Everybody seemed to have a great time,” said Cara, who used money from a USDA NCR Sustainable Agriculture Youth grant to make the event possible. Other activities included playing in a corn bin, making s’mores, taking the miniature horses on a trail walk and other games.
