Bluffton families hit the ground running with a soaking wet kickball event on Friday night.
With a light rain at the start of the game, about 20 kids played on through the pouring rain. And when the heavy rain continued, they ran the bases and slid in the puddles and mud at the baseball field.
The car show and band at DJ's Powerhouse were canceled, though people could still enjoy burgers, brats and potato salad.
In Wadena, the amazing amount of rain brought flooded streets.
