Whoever thought that the usual, every-Saturday ride to town would lead to one of the Southeast Tourism Society's Top Twenty Events? The parade has always been the centerpiece of the festival, which began in 1955 after Curtis Hussey and his cousins received the town’s blessing to organize a small show of horse-drawn carriages. Now the Farmers “Day” has expanded to three days and starts on Thursday evening. Saturday features the premier event – the Farmers Day Parade with as many as 600 horses, mules and oxen – at 11:00 am, and music on three stages throughout the day, along with food, crafts, carnival rides, Lumberjack Competition and even a Tractor Parade!
