The town hosted a K9 Frisbee performance team who showed off their tricks for residents and kids outside the John Curtis Library and Stetson House.

Mike Piazza, who leads the team of Border Collies, said he works to make sure his shows are highly interactive for a youth audience.

"I try to get as many kids involved in the show as possible," Piazza said.

"[We] had to practice a lot and we got into competitions, made it to the world finals many times," he said. "Actually still hold the record for the highest scoring competition ever."

Beyond the well-known tricks like jumping and playing dead -- the dogs can also run in sprints up to 30 miles per hour.
