If you haven’t had enough fun today, the Roots & Fruits Expo continues this afternoon and this evening, plus Sunday in Oliver Community Park.

The big day started this morning with the parade on Main Street, followed by many activities, including gold panning, mechanical bull riding and talent show.

Ken Jones was the tallest man in the parade.









Many old machines were on display, taking people back in time.







Young boys were fascinated with gold panning and actually took home some gold.
