The annual Fourth of July parade in Perry went off without a hitch, unless it be the latches on the many trailers and floats that helped create a procession nearly an hour in length.
The Perry-Area Chamber of Commerce-sponsored event was well attended, both is terms of the number of entrants and by the size of crowds along the route. With unseasonably cool weather kicking off 12 hours of Independence Day celebrations, many citizens headed for the numerous activities planned for Pattee Park and to the Perry Fine Arts concert and ice cream extravaganza at the First United Methodist Church.
