Osage County Fair Parade remembers good times back when

Osage Nursing Center brought back memories of soda shops and poodle skirts with its first-place float.

Wrapping up another Osage County Fair Parade last week, winners of the float competition decorated to fit the theme of “Remember When”, highlighting pleasant memories of the past. Taking first place in the parade hosted annually by the Osage City Chamber of Commerce was Osage Nursing Center, with a float depicting teenagers’ past fun of hanging out at the soda shop wearing pink poodle skirts. Willing Workers 4-H Club’s float won second place with scenes celebrating America’s history and patriotism. Taking third place was the Osage City Wrestling Club, with their float that highlighted local athletes’ past successes.

Keeping with the parade theme, the grand marshal was Arlo Bell, who has written a history column for local newspapers for many years titled Remember When. Honored as Mr. and Mrs. Osage City for their years of community support were Tara and Dave Azwell.
