(WHAS 11) -- A beloved yearly event is back in the Schnitzelburg neighborhood.

The 43rd Annual Dainty Contest kicked off July 29, next to Hauck's Handy on Goss Avenue.

Dainty players use a broom handle or other stick to flip a peg off the ground.

Then they have to swat the peg in mid air.

The winner is the person who can hit their peg the farthest.

The game was brought to Louisville by German immigrants in the mid 1800's.
