Winners of the 63rd Annual Farmers Day Parade
There was stormy weather to the north, south and right over Jesup on Saturday morning of Farmers Day this year. But that didn't keep Farmers Day fans away from this annual favorite!

A heavy shower drenched chairs and blankets that were set out early prior to the parade. Another heavy downpour put a quick end to the parade as well, but it still lasted 50 full minutes and was packed with great entries.

The Overall Sweepstakes Winner was Teri Nie Realty. The Jesup Chamber of Commerce provides the $150 sweepstakes award for the best "overall" float in the parade. The float featured a gingerbread house and lollipops; its theme "Talk to Teri for a Sweet Deal."

Other winners are:
Businessmen's Floats — 1st Prize, Dream Chaser Acres; 2nd, Inspired Living Chiropractic.

Church Floats — 1st Prize, First Presbyterian Church; 2nd, First United Methodist Church; 3rd Prize, American Lutheran Church.

Organization Floats — 1st Prize, Jesup Girl Scouts; 2nd Prize, Atom Bombers 4-H Club; 3rd Prize, Get Back on the Track Fast.

Out of Town Floats — 1st Prize, Irish Fest (Waterloo); 2nd Prize, Oktoberfest, Sumner.

Decoorated Cars — 1st Prize, Farmers Wife.

Decorated Trucks — 1st Prize, Cedar Valley Hospice; 2nd Prize, Dairy Kone.

There were no horse and wagon or horse and pony rider entries this year, probably due to the weather.

Congratulations to all the winners and thanks to all the participants for making another wonderful parade.
