Michael Poppinga, 14, of Lake Forest and Isabelle Mathis, 5, of Polo, ride the Scrambler Saturday afternoon at Polo Town and Country Days in downtown Polo. The annual event kicked off Wednesday and wrapped up Sunday, giving guests a weekend-plus full of fun and “Polo Pride,” the theme of this year’s celebration. Town and Country Days also featured a car show and swap meet, beer garden, 50-50 drawing, spaghetti and Jell-O-eating contests, an Oreo-stacking contest, music and much more. The event started in 1966 as a way to raise money for a pool, and has grown into a city-wide celebration in the past 51 years.
