Hundreds lined the streets of Chesterville Saturday at noon as the Heritage Day parade passed by with the Highland High School band, Color Guard, Girl Scout and Boy Scout troops, antique tractors and kids on bikes. Grand Marshall Isabella Noble rode in style in a scarlet Avanti convertible driven by Richard James.

Chesterville resident, Curt Vallen said he was pleased with the 65 degrees and sunshine, considering they had rain last year and it was snowing at Heritage Day Festival two years ago.

The Selover Library offered popcorn, balloons and games for children along with The Great Whodini Magician and community soccer games.

The Methodist Church banquet hall was crowded over lunch hour as people enjoyed a sandwich and piece of pie before mingling at street vendors on the church lawn. The Oster family provided a petting zoo complete with a goat, llama, chickens and rabbits.

The day ended with a square dance demo, pie auction, spaghetti dinner and Doc Chester’s traditional Medicine Show at the Village Hall.
