Fair Parade winners announced

Seamann’s Mini-Barnyard Petting Zoo was the Best of Theme winner in the parade.
Boone County Fair Parade was held Sunday, July 12, on a revised route to promote social distancing.
Rules did not allow entries to walk through the parade, or candy to be thrown to onlookers.
Many people were on hand to watch the parade from residential yards along the route, but the number of entries in categories declined to 32 this year, according to Dana Mangelson, parade chairman.
Grand Marshals for the parade were the Boone County Health Center staff. Veterans groups provided the Honor Guard, and most area fire departments participated.
See the category winners in this week’s Albion News, Petersburg Press and St. Edward Advance, print and e-editions.
Doug Ruth was back with his self-propelled manure spreader to entertain at the fair parade.
