Nappanee embraced the Fourth with a daylong festival on a gorgeous sunny afternoon. After the parade wound its way through town, tossing candy to the crowds, celebrants moved to Stauffer park for games and food.
The Nappanee Fire Department sponsored a waterball game, in which two teams used fire hoses to blast a ball back and forth. The supreme soaking was just the thing for the hot afternoon. A talent show showcased dancing, singing and karate while food vendors dished up summer favorites and the pool was open and free.
The festivities will continue into the night — check here for information on fireworks.
