As I arrived on Main Street, people were milling around waiting for the start of the parade. The vendors were busy selling food to the Black Walnuteers!

The Gideons were out on every corner distributing free copies of the New Testament. The fellow below was parading through the crowd with his 'Jesus or Hell" sign.

The parade started at noon and it was only 11:15 when the picture below was taken. The rental chairs were starting to fill up. I decided not to wait for the parade, but walk back to Mom's house.

As I turned the corner, I saw two special friends on the stage playing old time music.

Lester McCumbers and Kim Johnson are always a pleasure to talk with and to experience their many tunes that have been carried down through the ages. Lester has won many awards and is a recipient of the Vandalia Award.

Last views of the Festival in tomorrow's post.
