TinyTown River Days

Last year, TinyTown held its first "River Days" - a combination of street festival, activities, fundraisers and more...and it went pretty well, but this year was much, much bigger!

Lots of food booths, crowds, music and merriment was had by all! The theme was "Salute to Freedom" so there was a huge emphasis on veterans, there was a USO group here, and lots more. The library got in on the action by displaying WWII photos and memorabilia that was loaned to us by the community...we had a really great display...

Photos and an actual WWII navy uniform..

The abandoned silos that block the view...there is a townwide fundraiser going on to finally tear them down and show off our view...
The Silos - Ugh!
And hey! I finally tried a peanut coke!
