The 44th annual Arts in the Alley Music and Arts Festival may have kicked off in the evening on Sept. 15, but the official opening of the popular event happened the following morning when the community parade rolled through town. For more than an hour, over 50 civic associations, community groups, marching bands, and festively adorned floats parade 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. Among the parade entries who wowed the crowd were bands and groups from the westside, such as the Franklin Heights High School marching band, pictured here making their way through the route.
