Highlights included the dunk tank, the hula hoop toss and lolipop tree.
The following was submitted by Rebecca Kovrlija, Community Outreach Chair for the Dover PTO: At this year's Dover PTO booth, over 200 children enjoyed playing a variety of games and winning prizes.

"It's definitely more people than we've ever had in three years," PTO Co-President Heather Tourtellotte said.
