Although the 43rd annual Arts in the Alley Music and Arts Festival may have kicked off on Sept. 16, the community parade held the following day announced its official opening in grand style. For more than an hour, over 50 civic associations, community groups, marching bands, and floats paraded through the heart of downtown Grove City, filling the air with music and laughter, and bringing delight and tons of candy to the children and adults who lined the streets. Shown here are some of the sights captured during the 33rd annual community parade. Here, members of the Grove City High School marching band showcase their skills at the event.
