Fairgoers at Forada Days dodged sporadic rain showers on Saturday afternoon to enjoy plenty of events at the annual festival.

Besides the parade, attendees also had the opportunity to take in a kids pedal pull, pig races, turtle races and firemen water wars.


The festival continues Saturday evening with a street concert before wrapping up tomorrow morning with a First Responders homemade breakfast.
