A’ror’n Days Poll Contest

AURORA, Neb. (KSNB) – It was a celebration for books in Aurora for the annual A’ror’n Days on Saturday. There were tons of activities for families and even a sporting event that only the bravest could do.

It took 90% speed and the right form to cross the bar. Or at least that’s what 17-year-old Kaden Carolson thinks is what it takes to be a great polling outfielder.

“It’s more of a competition against the bar and less against the competition, against the other competitors,” Carolson told Local4 News.

It can be scary to get up there and jump over 10 feet in the air, but that’s one of the reasons it does.

“There is a sense of danger, but it adds to the fun,” Carolson said.

Carolson has been polling since he was in sixth grade and he’s actually followed in his father’s footsteps, who is also the coach of the Aurora High School poll team.

“I love doing it, the feeling afterwards,” Carolson said. “You fall into the carpet, it’s just that you’re in seventh heaven over there.”

He used all his years of training and training with his father to compete in the annual street jumping competition at A’ror’n Days this year. He finished at 14 feet 8 inches.

“I think I did well enough to be in the middle of the summer, not training every day,” Carolson said. “I’m pretty happy with what I did.”

This competition was started over 10 years ago by the Sky High Vault Club which was actually created by his father Chad Carolson and his friends.

“It gives us the opportunity to kind of showcase the voting vault and what we do and it’s fun for the fans, the athletes love it, the parents get involved so it’s a great sport. community, ”said Street Vault Chad Carolson.

Children ages six to full adults competed for prizes and bragging rights for the remainder of the year.

There were a lot of other activities during the event on Saturday. There were food trucks, a parade and more activities on Sunday. For the full program click here.
