(Left image) It was a sunny day for playing games and watching a show. Junkyard Symphony brough out their Junkyard Jam, Roving Recyclers, Marble Mansion and Bottle Ball as seen in this picture. The point of Bottle Ball is to roll a marble in between bottles, trying to get the marble to the other end of the board. It's a fun game to play, as long as the bottles don't freeze!
