West Salem, Wis. – (WXOW) – Despite cloudy skies, the rains held off and West Salem’s June Dairy Days carried on with it’s annual parade. The procession down Leonard Street included firetrucks, local school bands and a tractor. Parade goers of all ages lined the route.
“I like how there’s a bunch of people in a big crowd,” said Collin Hodgins. “I was hoping to see a lot of fire trucks and then I’m going to try and make them honk their horns and I’m going to try and collect a bunch of candy.”
In addition to the parade, the carnival grounds were set to open in the early afternoon. The evening’s entertainment is set for live music from Burnin’ Whiskey.
Sunday wraps up the celebration with a bicycle tour ride in the country. Participants can choose either the 24 mile or 63 mile route. The grounds will also have a car and antique tractor show.
