One of Hendry county's largest annual events, the Saturday morning parade is always a crowd pleaser for residents and visitors alike. The hour-long parade down two-mile long Main Street brought smiles to the kids and parents watching as marching bands, floats and clowns marched through the streets of this rural town.
The parade ended at Barron Park along the Caloosahatchee river front where the week-end festival's events take place. The Festival closes Sunday after dozens of musicians perform, and thousands of visitors take their fill of festival foods.
