Thanks to the efforts and dedication of the numerous organizers and over 100 volunteers, this year’s Duvall Days was a huge success with activities on Saturday that spread from Main Street to McCormick Park. Evening entertainment and fireworks concluded the day. On Sunday, events included a Fun Run, the Firefighters Pancake Breakfast and Cowpie Bingo (at Cherry Valley Dairy with tours).
The event has grown considerably since its beginnings decades ago when the town’s population was only a few hundred. The old-timers used to joke (actually they still do) about the parade having to go around the block twice to make it long enough to actually be a parade and that one year the first prize winner was a logging truck that just happened to be passing through town.
