June 9 the Eckville Parade drew many to the town’s main streets

 

Employees from the Co-Op wave to the many people who lined the street for the Eckville Rodeo Parade last Saturday.

Despite a brief sprinkling of rain, the Eckville Library was situated at the end of Main Street selling books, with the proceeds going back to the library.

Many children along the route were seen in the street during the parade to quickly pick up candy thrown their way.

One of the parade floats even had live music to keep the parade-goers entertained the whole way through.

The Eckville Fire Department were out in force during the parade. They handed out candy and waved as they walked the street.
