It was a great Perry parade

Saturday morning around 10 a.m. was the kickoff time for the annual South Perry Fair and Parade. The parade isn't the largest one in town, but that's one of its charms. The reverend Happy Watkins was the grand marshal, but kids on decorated bicycles and in little waggons stole the show - along side the Grant Elementary School drummers and dancers. To see some video hit Facebook here and scroll down a little bit.
The parade is the start of the day-long fair in Grant Park. This year's fair featured music, food and crafters and it's also become the traditional 'coming out' event for local politicians running for office.
