The Annie Oakley Parade… an Annual Tradition

Photos by Jessica Transue and Dylan Hoover, Teen Scribes

The Annie Oakley Festival has a long history in Darke County. It honors the county’s favorite daughter, Little Miss Sure Shot… Annie Oakley.

A tradition of the festival is the parade. It starts at the Garst Museum, heads south on Broadway and through downtown Greenville, then continues south on Washington to Fair, then west to the Darke County Fairgrounds.

A long trek… unless of course you are riding.

The Parade and Festival was preceded by the Downtown Greenville Sidewalk sale that centered around the KitchenAid Experience. Part of each year’s experience is the Miss Annie Oakley Shootout, which begins on Wednesday prior to the opening of the Sidewalk Sale. Since then a 5K Walk and Walking in Pink for Breast Cancer Awareness events were added.

This year there were two new additions… A Gathering at Garst, honoring the people and events in Darke County’s history, and complete photo coverage of the parade by two Teen Scribes, both Greenville Interactive Media students… Jessica Transue and Dylan Hoover.

The parade was better than ever with well over 100 entries, including Snoopy, Mickey and Minnie Mouse and all of your favorites. Enjoy today’s sampling. Coming soon, a complete series of photos documenting the annual event. Also still coming… more photos from A Gathering at Garst, plus the 5K and Walking in Pink for Breast Cancer Awareness.
