The Relay for Life has been a chilly occasion for the past couple of years, but on Saturday the sun shone for the 2011 event.

Cancer survivors and caregivers took part in the victory lap first, then enjoyed the entertainment all day long while teams walked and ran.

Lots of bands and musicians kept the crowds entertained, as well as dancers, karaoke, head shaving and more.

More than $60,000 was raised.
