HC FAIR TAKING ENTRIES FOR TOMATO FESTIVAL PARADE

 

It’s never to early to think about the Henry County Fair, which will hit the south side of Napoleon in less than 4 months.    The fair board is now taking entries for the annual Tomato Festival parade, which is scheduled for Sunday, August 11th, with the theme ‘county scenes and children’s dreams’.

            This year’s Grand Marshal for the parade will be Fred Freppel, CPA- a long-time coordinator for harness racing activities at the Henry County Fair.

The Float Judging contest will include a top prize of $200, in the categories of youth, organizational, commercial, and religious.  Ribbons and prize money will be awarded based on use of the theme, originality, difficulty of work, and overall appearance.
