A flat bed trailer full of pumpkins and gourds of every description and variety was pulled through the Versailles Pumpkin Show Parade on Saturday. After the parade, the fall produce was then sold for a minimal fee with all proceeds going back into the community through the efforts of the Versailles Lions Club. Members of the club raised the pumpkins and gourds.
Johnson boys have fun at parade
You might not recognize them in this get up, but Rod Johnson, driving the boat, and cousin, Ed Johnson Jr., both of Milan, will do anything to help kids. The pair had a comedy act in the Versailles Pumpkin Show Parade on Saturday and it's all to bring attention to the work of the Shriners, a group that helps children with severe medical needs.
