“Main Street is one of my favorite places, and it was fun to ride in the parade and see so many friends,” Able said. “My ride in the parade was a bright red 1955 Buick driven by Mr Tony, a true gentleman. Both being of a certain age, we had lots of fun reminiscing about the ’50s.”

Able noted that the event featured many food vendors and craft merchants, and he said that it was a beautiful day.

Maureen Rogers, administrative coordinator with The Laurel Board of Trade, said there was a steady stream of people throughout the day and that everyone appeared to enjoy the local bands and variety of food trucks.

“I always love the parade and, personally, that was one of my highlights of the day,” Rogers said.

Plans are already underway for the 44th festival, which will take place next year. Rogers would love to see the addition of floats to the parade, along with a contest for best the one. No guarantees, but stay tuned.
