The parade for Old Home Day is on Saturday but the festivities start on Thursday evening.
This old hose setup doesn't get much use anymore but the fire department is still all-volunteer and George Lewis is still the Fire Chief.
This truck got dolled up as a movable landscape. Not quite sure what the goose is doing on the hood!
All the costumes for the parade are homemade and are better for it.
This old tractor is testament to never throwing anything out…and at least it's paid for!
Jed and his wife Mandy have some of the best floats and costumes. These are hand-drawn boxes and cans—they even have foam elbows!
Now that's a picture—dad with son on tractor!
This is Donna and Axel's granddaughter on her unicycle.
This cow was particularly proud of HIS udder!
Last year, this "clown" was seated on a toilet on a float! She looks better this year!
Not the usual farmer float!
Not sure exactly why there was a dragon in the parade, but loved it anyway.
My favorite photo of the whole event—this dog looks great!
A sentiment shared by all.
The WIN A CAKE contest—place your 25-cent bets and spin the wheel.
Fried dough is always a winner.
This "dope" didn't get dunked on this ball, although it was close.
Now here's a guy who takes his throwing seriously!
This year they got a great band and they all looked my age!
This couple were the first to step out onto the dance floor and they looked great!
This is the junior version of dinging the bell.
This is the grown-up version, and this young man was getting a little help from his dad.
