There was definitely a lot of action during the Manhattan Beach 10K Run and the Hometown Fair the first weekend in October.

To capture that action, and pay homage to the history and longevity of these two MB events, DigMB held our first photo contest, taking photo submissions from both events in three categories: Cutest Photo, Best Fair Scene/Spirit, and Best Action Shot.

We hope the photographers who entered photos enjoyed the contest (and 10K and hometown fair) as much as we did. The submissions spanned the gamut of sights from both events, and we thank everyone who participated, told someone about the contest, and all who've take time to view our wonderful entries.

DigMB gives a special thank you to all our prize donors, without whom this contest would not have taken place: Fresh Brothers Pizza - Manhattan Beach, The Original Rinaldi's Manhattan Beach, Simms Restaurants, including Simmzy's - Manhattan BeachManhattan Beach PostFishing With Dynamite, and Tin Roof Bistro, and musical artist Daddy Roots.

Prizes included a $150 gift certificate to any of Simms Restaurants (Simmzy's - Manhattan BeachManhattan Beach PostFishing With Dynamite, and Tin Roof Bistro), two pizza playdates (valued at $85 each) for eight lucky kids from Fresh Brothers Pizza, two Family Meals (valued at $42.95) each), two $20 gift certificates for The Original Rinaldi's Manhattan Beach, two Simmzy's Summer Series T-Shirts in special Simmzy's mason jar mugs, four "Rainbow Kids" musical CDs by recording artist Daddy Roots, and two Rinaldi's T-shirts.
