Then the southern Washington County town’s downtown was filled with sounds of celebration as onlookers cheered, applauded and waved as a parade of musicians, Cub Scouts, cheerleaders and public servants came down Main Street. Many of the people in the parade, including politicians and children, tossed candy to the spectators as they made their way down the parade route.
