PHOTOS: Sun and stars shine for Cherryville Day

A single day didn’t dampen the spirits of everyone out for the annual Cherryville Day on Saturday.

High water at its community park prompted officials to turn the 55th annual Cherryville Days into a one-day event and a switch in venues.

Hanson Park has been closed due to flooding from Cherry Creek so, after much discussion, the Cherryville Days committee decided to move activities to the Cherryville Community Hall and make the weekend a one-day event on Saturday, June 2.

Cherryville Day kicked off with the annual pancake breakfast, after which kids of all ages lined the road for the parade lineup.

A bouncy castle, concession, pet show, beer garden, bingo, Outhouse Races, kids’ games and ‘High Water Dance’ were enjoyed by all.
