Hanover Harvest Festival 2013

Jayden Myhre of St. Paul might be 17 months old, but he’s plenty old enough to realize the value of a candy bar. Here, Jayden reaches for the goods along the Hanover Harvest Festival parade route. More photos from Harvest Festival are in this issue. (Sun staff photo by Bill Nord) American Legion members march at the start of the parade. A nice crowd stands by as the weather was near perfect sunny in the 80s. (Photo by Bill Nord)
Hanover Historical Society’s float theme was Saturday Night Bath. Mike Kehn, vice president, is sitting in the tub with Mary Coons behind him. The tin bathtub is what one of the artifacts the society got from the oldest house in town before they burned it down. It was made either for or by the town co-founder William Vollbrecht, and has his name on the wooden top. So the float artifact is historic and original. Krystle Brown, left, newly crowned as Miss Hanover and Emma Gutknecht, Hanover Princess, do their “first wave” together.
Dotz the clown does some authentic “clowning around” with receptive kids at the parade.
Kids fun run participants let loose at the start of the race.
It just wouldn’t be a summer festival without fireworks, and Hanover Harvest Festival delivers with style.
The Hanover Fire and Rescue Department’s antique fire engine is always a big hit in the parade. (Photo by Bill Nord)
