Hyla Middle School will hold the first-ever round of the Hyland Games, a free community event featuring outdoor field games, carnival-style games for all ages, plus prizes, raffles, live music and food trucks, at noon Sunday, May 18.

The event is intended to replace the popular annual chili cook off, which the school had held annually for 16 years.

The Hyland Games event is modeled after traditional Highland Games held in many countries and is intended as a celebration of the island’s culture and community.

Musical entertainment will include a traditional Scottish bagpiper and a performance by the school band.

Field games and activities will include Capture the Flag, Gold Rush, a giant sling shot, human-sized hamster ball races as well as various probability games and mazes designed by Hyla students.

Several of Kitsap County’s most popular food trucks will be on site, offering a variety of tasty treats, including Papa’s Place, Boogaloo’s Bar-B-Que, F Stop Cafe, Pink-a-nator and Smooth-E.

There is no admission fee, and tickets for games are $1 per ticket. Games average one to five tickets each.

Hyla Middle School is located at 7861 Bucklin Hill Road. Free parking is across the street at the American Legion Hall.
