Larry Vodenik - Special to The Chief

Did You Know… what the parade is for and when it took place? This is the 1954 Ridiculous Day parade on 2nd Street. This was a huge annual event in Perry. There were sidewalk sales and retailers dressed up and fun for all. I remember stopping at the Perry Chief, they had tables outside, with free photos from their files. Non-retailers, like insurance offices, etc. gave sidewalk space to churches and other groups for food and drink stands. What a fun event.
