Miami County Dance Movement, celebrating its 10th year, placed first for Best Float, Open Class, at the Rotary Fair Parade.

Families enjoyed a picturesque summer evening during the 72nd annual Miami County Fair Parade sponsored by the Paola Rotary Club.

Spectators waved at floats and children grabbed handfuls of candy during the parade, which took place July 22 around Park Square and down to the fairgrounds at Wallace Park.

This year’s theme was “There’s No Place Like Home,” which was appropriate considering most Miami County residents have been spending a lot of time at home this year during the pandemic.

Some of the parade participants earned awards for their entries, and the results are listed below.
