Did You Know… this is a photo of the Ridiculous Day Parade? Perry had many events in past years. The carnival came to town every year.


They located the carnival in different locations, downtown or in Pattee Park. I remember the circus, when it arrived by train and the elephants marching down Second Street. There was Town & Country Days, the Sentimental Journey, Little Britches Rodeo and more. The Toby tent show in the Park for a number of years. What you remember is determined by when you lived in Perry.
