The times they keep a changin' but it seems like Red, White and Blue
never go out of style! (with a splash of pig pink thrown in!)
The annual Hog Days parade is the focal point of Saturday's weekend
celebration. The parade winds its way from one end of town to
the other with over a hundred entries celebrating pigs, agriculture
and patriotism in general. With 35 years practice under their belt,
the parade is expertly planned and executed by the Kewanee Chamber
of Commerce Ambassador's Club.
Upon entering the parade, all applicants are categorized with
awards going to those judged best in each of the categories. For
2015, the winners included:
State Bank of Toulon - Commercial Award
Visitation School - Not for Profit Award
Appliances Unlimited - Ambassador's Award
Preferred Health Care - Sweepstakes Award
Great Dane Trailers - Most Original
Parade Marshal was Bruce Tossell, former Mayor and City
Councilman of the City of Kewanee.
