Local Boy Scouts celebrate 103rd anniversary at Scout-O-Rama

This week is the 103rd anniversary of the Boy Scouts of America, and local scouts are celebrating with their fourth annual Scout-O-Rama event.

Scouts from around the central coast met at the Santa Maria Town Center Saturday, for a free fun-filled day of scouting activities.

The event included a pinewood derby, climbing wall, trading post, and a formal flag ceremony.

Troops from all over were invited to showcase their skills at booths.

"With that good program, fun events like this to come out to, cool interactions, cool stuff to see, it's really what gets kids there and is what makes scouting so fun and effective for everyone," said Eagle Scout Kevin Hays.

This was the first time the girl scouts had booths at the event. 46 troops came out for today's activities, and 12 were girl scout troops.
