Grayville Days 2010: a view of Saturday’s parade!
GRAYVILLE—One of the biggest fests in the South Counties area, end of summer, is Grayville Days. The fest originated in the oil boom that swept the area decades ago, and over the years has waxed and waned in size and scale, ranging from a strictly hometown flavor some years, to huge names in music (usually Country) appearing to really bring in the crowds in other years.
This year despite there being no big-name draws, the crowds have been huge at Grayville, located in northernmost White County (and partially in Edwards) for those not familiar with the area. The festivities kicked off with the crowning of Miss, Little Miss and Mister Grayville Days royalty Thursday night; opening ceremonies Friday evening; and the parade Saturday, some of which is featured here (the rest will be filling up several pages of the print version, on stands next Monday, 09.13.10!)
Above, the Color Guard, provided by the various Veterans’ groups in the area (who are commendably very active in Grayville and surrounding communities), leads the way. In the background can be seen the historic Wabash Theatre, where events including Miss Grayville Days are held throughout the fest.
Below are some of the floats and scenes from the parade:
Grayville Days continues today, and the Junior Team (who is doing an AWESOME JOB covering area fests!) will be there for everything from Bessie Bingo (you gotta see it to understand it) to the Fireworks Display tonight…we’ll get coverage on here as soon as we get the pics, and don’t forget to pick up your copy of the print version next week at Grayville Casey’s, Gone Bananas and Liquor Barn so you can have even MORE Grayville Days scenes to keep for yourself!
