Nursery School Olympics at Elizabeth Park in Trenton

Little kids go tot-to-tot in these friendly, child-sized Olympic Games, happening outdoors on Wednesday, June 6, 2012. And the crowd goes wild!

So, maybe your aspiring athletes are still a wee bit young to be London-bound for the 2012 Olympic Games. But they can still take home a medal this summer – guaranteed, no less! – and make their parents proud in the 21st annual Nursery School Olympics (refreshments and the prizes are all included in this totally free event!).

The fun heads back to Downriver hotspot Elizabeth Park, in Trenton, on Wednesday, June 6, 2012.

Competitors ages 5 and under are invited to run, jump and roll through the obstacle course, show off their best dribbles (or drools!) in a game of kiddy basketball, and try their little hands at the Marshmallow Shot Put and Paper Plate Discus. Crawling tots can race in the Diaper Derby, while the speedier set can move those legs in the Toddler Trot. And, after long jumps and low (low) hurdles, athletes can spin off in the Big Wheel Grand Prix (be sure to bring along your own a Big Wheel or bike to participate).

Events will commence at 10:30 a.m. Fans are called to gather and cheer on their tiny Olympians in this scenic Wayne County park. Ultimately, it's a noncompetitive event – think of it as a chance to lets small fries get their first taste of trying out physical challenges alongside their peers.

All interested "competitors" can register on site (for free!) on the day of the event. For more information, including the phone number, website and directions for the 2012 Nursery School Olympics in Elizabeth Park in Trenton, be sure to check out the Metro Parent event listing.

Let the games begin!
