Wellington's Pioneer Day festivities delight crowds
A Union officer tosses a handful of candy to spectators at Wellington's Pioneer Day Parade Saturday morning. The parade capped off months of effort by planners and float builders. The city park was busy throughout the day as vendors sold their goods and services, and provided live entertainment for visitors. The theme for this year's festivites was, "Our Roots Run Deep," recognizing that many families in town can trace their ancestry to pioneer settlers. More pictures are on page 2A.
