Gerald was represented Sunday at Bicentennial Parade in Union

A Franklin County Bicentennial Celebration Parade was held Sunday after on the courthouse square in Union. Groups from around the county participated. At least three groups from Gerald were part of the procession. 

The Franklin County Historical Society entered a float in the parade. Members of the group were dressed in period costumes from several eras throughout the county’s 200 year history. 

The Gerald-Rosebud Fire Department drove 714, a fire truck the department purchased from the Union department in 2016, through Union. Many other emergency vehicles were part of the procession.

The Gerald Bridle and Saddle Club rode through the streets on a trailer pulled by a John Deere tractor. Several members rode their horses along the route.

There are events planned for the rest of the year throughout the county. The next will be Night at the Museum, at the Washington Historical Society located at Fourth and Market streets. Walt Larson, author of Price’s Raid and Franklin County” will present information from that book. 

There are no events planned in Gerald.
