Festival-goers kept one eye toward the sky last weekend, but the  rain that threatened to fall on the Peebles Old Timer’s Day Festival held off until Saturday evening.
“I think it went pretty well,” said festival chairperson  Heather James. “The weather didn’t always work out in our favor, but  it didn’t seem to keep people away. The vendors did a good business,  and we had large turnouts for the pageants and the musical venues. I’m  so thankful to the community and surrounding businesses for their  support. We couldn’t do it without them.”

The festival also featured more than a dozen entertainment venues and there were also the usual fun contests: watermelon eating,  bubblegum blowing, hot dog eating, and kiddie tractor pulls. For the  second year in a row Asher Beam took home first prize in the popular Kiddie and Pet Parade for his western-style-horse-drawn wagon.
Dozens of classic cars featured in the OK Auto Parts Car Show lined up Sunday to join in the festival’s finale, the Grand Parade.  Led by Grand Marshals Victor and Patricia Warfe, the five block parade route was lined with people and children waiting to scoop up the candy  paraders toss into the crowd. The two-hour parade featured royalty,  floats, flags, marching bands, cheerleaders, Scouts, the always  popular Hillbilly Shriners, 4-H clubs, horses, ponies, and politicians.
The Old Timer’s Days Festival is a community fundraiser produced  by the Peebles Lions Club.
