The annual Old Timers Day celebration was held over the weekend in downtown Manchester. The activities began Friday night and ran all day Saturday.
The Wizzard of Oz float was named the winner of the parade contest. On the square in Manchester those attending Old Timers Day enjoyed many things to do including a petting zoo, greased pole climb, clogging, musical groups throughout the day, children’s activities, food and craft booths and an old fashioned ice cream eating contest.
