Audience members were given programs, notepads and pencils to follow along with the competition. View photos here.

To kick off the festivities, judges awarded the team with the loudest cheering section a cake from Flour Barrel Bakery. People, young and old, brought noise makers, signs and all around good cheer.

Ten 3-person teams represented:
