Members of Solanco High School's FFA chapter have two goals for their annual Solanco Fair Parade float.
"We're trying to stay with the fair theme [sports spectacular]," said chapter vice president Andrew Aument.
The chapter members also have a more personal message for the float. "We're trying to do a tribute to Brian Zug," Aument said. Zug, who died April 17 at the age of 39, had coached the FFA chapter's dairy judging team for years.
Larry Myers looks forward to the day he can sit along the street and watch the Solanco Fair Parade with his wife, Linda.
He'll have to wait until 2015 because Myers will be leading this year's parade as the grand marshal.
"It's quite an honor," Myers said. "My first reaction was, 'Gee, isn't this usually something for older folks and then I realized I was 60 years old and it kind of fit."
Myers has been involved with the fair for 29 years and serves as its resident electrician.
