EAST CARBON SUNNYDIDE COMMUNITY DAZE

Mad Max and the Wild Ones were back once again this year to rock Community Daze. The family group along with many others played to a packed house on Saturday night.

Despite some difficult weather, the Sunnyside Rodeo went very well once again in 2012. This buckin cowboy wouldn't disagree.
Many types of transportation were used during this year's parade. As far as our staff knows, Jeff Hunt is not really a farmer but he has a tractor anyway.

The Community Daze parade is definitely a "kid friendly" event as all children participating, under the age of 12, are given a prize by local officials. East Carbon's Pup's Sinclair also treats local youth by raffling off several bicycles following the events parade.

Like two poles on a magnet, events on the east and west sides of Carbon Country attracted big crowds Friday and Saturday. In Price, it was the annual Greek Festival at the Assumption Greek Orthodox Church that was the big draw. Photos of that event will run in Thursday's paper. Today's picture pages beginning on 10A highlight the Community Daze extravaganza in East Carbon/Sunnyside. Above, Kristy Manzanares enjoys roasted corn, while Lynn Carlsen gets some exercise on his vehicle at the car show.
