Everybody loves a parade - or so the saying goes - and that was no more apparent than at Thursday's Old Home Week Parade in Greencastle. The only traffic that moved in downtown Greencastle on Thursday from 6:30 to 8 p.m. was the home-spun parade that entertained onlookers. Sierra Wagaman, 17, of Marion, Pa., was one of thousands who watched the 95-unit parade snake its way through town. “It gets better every Old Home Week,” she said. For the soon-to-be Greencastle-Antrim High School senior, it was hard to divert her eyes from the parade route to ask her questions.

Trying to take a good family photo is a difficult enough feat to accomplish. Imagine how James Ivey feels every three years when he's tasked with the job of capturing Greencastle's growing town family during the Official Old Home Week group photo. “We get here about 10:30 (a.m.) or 11 (a.m.), and it's totally deserted,” said Ivey. “At 11:25 (a.m.), there are 2,000 people in the plaza. I don't know where they come from, but it's wonderful,” he said with a chuckle. Ivey, owner of Central Photo Co. in Washington, D.C., has been taking the town's official photo since the 1970s.

“Hey, how are you?” “It was good to run into you.” “They'll let anyone in here, won't they?” Snippets of conversation overheard on Greencastle's town square Sunday hinted at the reunions - and good-natured ribbing - occurring as thousands flock to events that are part of the community's triennial Old Home Week. Greencastle is awash in red, white and blue for the weeklong festival, which featured a car show Sunday afternoon. The car show organizing committee suspects visitors saw antique vehicles they would not see displayed in other settings.
