Rain did not keep people from enjoying Tater Day parade

Another Tater Day is in the books.  The 172 year old festival is one of the oldest continuously celebrated days of its kind.     

Monday afternoon’s storms did not keep people from celebrating Tater Day in Marshall County. Even though the parade was delayed by about 45 minutes, people bundled up and watched as the entries went by.

People did see a lot of rain and some lightning. Monday was the last day of the weekend-long celebration.

Tater Day organizer Patricia McWane said they will be closing the festival down earlier than normal due to the weather.
