People across the fourstates came out to enjoy the 31st annual Good Ol' Days festival today.
Fort scott's mayor says the festival helps keep the town vibrant.
A speedy sprint, high leap and one big splash.
"Some get really high and and your thinking 'can it fly?,'" says Fort Scott native Jacey Bowen.
Canines from all around the fourstates are taking part in the Mo-Kan Dockdogs, an aquatic competition.
"Training is constant we've been working on it for 5 years," says Cesily Lesko.
This is the second time Cesily Lesko and her dog Charlie take part in the town's annual good ol' days festival.
"You might inspire a new olympic athlete here," says Mayor Jim Adams.
Mayor Adams enjoys watching the adventurous dogs; as well as watching the crowds take over downtown.
"I think the whole community looks forward to it , it's the kick off to summer here in Fort Scott." says Adams.
Good ol' Days is put on by local residents. Along with all the fun they can help out a member of the DockDogs Family.
"His name is Hershey and he was diagnosed with Lymphoma not too long ago," says Lesko.
Proceeds from the event will go to help the chocolate lab and other dogs battle cancer.
The fun continues tonight with a live band and street dance along with wiener dog races.
Saturday's schedule is jam packed with choir performances, more dock dogs and a lot of food.
