Saturday, Sept. 29, at 2 p.m.
This year the Persimmon Festival committee has been working hard bringing our wonderful community another unforgettable September full of memories and annual activities that bring the citizens of Mitchell back together to catch up on old times and new additions to our lives in the past year.
As always we have taken pride in our annual parade wrapping up the festivities for the week. On Sept. 29, the committee asks that we all come together with faith that this year’s Persimmon Festival Parade will be one to remember. Parade chairman Gary “Mouse” Rayhill has been working and brainstorming on how to bring smiling faces and awe to the folks of Mitchell. It will be filled with all the classics we expect and hope to see for example, the horse riders, local tractors collectors, and of course our local car show entries. We have a confirmation for the South Shore Drill Team for a repeat visit. The parade unit always puts on an excellent show.
Then, of course, we have all the floats we can fit down the streets of Mitchell. The chairmen still have many invitations out and many confirming as we send them. So please come one and come all; bring the famly and the kids because this year’s Persimmon Parade will be one of a kind.
