Scheutzenfest Parade (copy)

As is the tradition at the Ehrhardt Schuetzenfest (German for “Hunter’s Festival”) Parade every year, someone is chosen to fire the ceremonial first shot at a dove that is released ahead of the procession. Last year, young Maddy McCully was tapped for the honor. She was assisted by Rusty Kinard.
