Library Square in downtown Hutchinson was filled with children and their teddy bears for another Jaycee Water Carnival tradition, the Teddy Bear Band concert.

There were picnic blankets, ice cream treats and pizza as parents and children danced alongside 2019 Miss Hutchinson candidates, as well as the 2018 Miss Hutchinson and princess, Erin Westlund and Olivia Watzke.

The band, which was inducted into the Minnesota Music Hall of Fame in 2016, played the classics such as "Teddy Bear Twist," "Hokey Pokey" and, of course, "Bear in the Air."
