The Manheim Community Farm Show Parade was held at 7 p.m. on Oct. 5.

The parade boasted over 135 entries, and to many, it seemed that more people than ever lined the parade route to take in the parade.

Represented were baby parade winners, several local high school marching bands, churches, businesses, civic organizations, animals, elected officials, emergency services personnel, and, of course, farmers.

Editor’s Note: Photographer Alan Johnson submitted well over a hundred photos to us. It was really a challenge to decide which ones would go in our print edition. Luckily, we’re able to post many more of them here on the digital product.
