Sterling Savings Bank will be presenting the Minute to Win It games at 1 p.m., Saturday at the community stage. Children ages 6 to 12 are welcome to compete in a variety of games including Try Mummy Me, Face the Cookie, This Blows, Extreme Hanky Panky and Junk in the Trunk.

In the game, Try Mummy Me, one player wraps another in a roll of toilet paper. In the game Face the Cookie, players are challenged to use only their face muscles to move a cookie from their forehead to their mouth. In the game This Blows, players use a straw to see who can blow a series of plastic cups off the end of the table first. Extreme Hanky Panky is a test of players’ skill at removing all the tissues (one at a time) from a box strapped to their waist. In the final game, Junk in the Trunk, players will jump and twist until all the jingle bells leap out of the tissue box tied behind them.

From 2 to 4 p.m., at the community stage, kids can paint free piggy banks to take home and fill with money. If children bring their completed piggy banks filled with money into the bank and open a free savings account, they will receive a prize.

Sterling Bank welcomes all ages to stop by their booth for free financial advice, video games and piggy banks. Free root beer from the Snoqualmie Falls Brewery will be served. Sterling partners will be on hand throughout the day to field questions about home loans, investing, and saving for college and retirement.
