Weather was perfect for Summer Daze

Picture-perfect weather prevailed throughout the three days of Leaf River Summer Daze June 1-3.

A cool front blew in Friday evening just in time for the fireworks show, bringing clear skies and mild temperatures all the way to the end of Grand Parade on Sunday afternoon.

The FFA Alumni Truck and Tractor Pull on Saturday drew the largest crowd of the weekend. 

People packed the bleachers on the field behind the River Valley Complex to watch local pullers in the afternoon, capped off by the Badger State Pullers show in the evening.

Fire Chief Steve Shelton was named Citizen of the Year by the Leaf River Grange on Friday night.

Sunday’s hour-long parade included floats, firetrucks, political candidates, and horses, all topped off by the marching precision and musical talent of Rockford’s Phantom Regiment.

The parade was sponsored by LR Communications and Exelon Nuclear.
