Kids love a parade
Mr. and Mrs. Randall Arnold, the Parade Marshals
The 2001 Molasses Festival King and Queen
2001 - The West Virginia Molasses Festival parade, the 34th year, drew a big crowd
from Calhoun and Roane counties, but lots of folks return for a homecoming
and often bring with them some new visitors. Mother and daughter
schoolteachers, Michelle Sundburg and Sharon Groves, from the Orrville,
Ohio area enjoyed the chicken barbecue.
It was a beautiful day for the parade, but the molasses sold out. The CCHS
band was the "Best of the Parade." CCHS majorettes took 1st place, the
Sparklers took 2nd and tying for third, the "Fall Harvest" float and the
Winners in bikes and 4-wheelers, 1st place Michael Tucker, 2nd Caddie
Roberts and Courtney McKown and Harley Harris took 3rd. The list of horse
and buggy entrants was not available.
