Hundreds of people turned out on Main Street to take in the sights and sounds of the annual Fling into Fall parade Saturday, Oct. 9.

The parade entertained the crowd with many attractions, including colorful clowns, antique cars, children sporting Halloween costumes and fire trucks from many Waldo County departments. A float carrying pink-clad parade participants intended to raise breast cancer awareness also graced the parade procession, as did several area politicians, police officers, businesspeople and a horse-drawn carriage.

Following the parade, spectators gathered on the lawn at the Penobscot Marine Museum to check out the entries for this year’s scarecrow contest.
