Open House Held



The McConnellsburg Volunteer Fire Company held an open house on Saturday and featured rides on the company’s old fire truck. With good weather prevailing most of the day, the truck could be seen around town always “loaded up”with passengers.

Always the crowd pleasers, the steam engines with their whistles blowing and steam rolling, regaled the crowds lining the streets on Saturday morning. Five steam engines participated in the parade while four of the steam engines competed in the steam engine pull at the fairgrounds.

Crowds lined nearly every inch of Lincoln Way on Saturday as cool but still perfect autumn weather showcased the county’s fall foliage and its many venues of hospitality. A variety of antique cars were part of the parade procession and Brett Cornelius and his wife, Lisa are shown above in theirs with their dog as they pass the reviewing stand at the Fulton House. Brett’s mother, Jackie, is riding in the “rumble seat.” Crowds lined nearly every inch of Lincoln Way on Saturday as cool but still perfect autumn weather showcased the county’s fall foliage and its many venues of hospitality.
