It was wheels down and feet on the ground for the Petunia Festival parade Sunday afternoon. Community members, The Jesse White Tumblers, The Next Generation Drill Team, Centerstage dancers, and others paraded down Peoria Avenue as the annual festival started to wind down. Grand marshals Lisa and Bud LeFevre saluted the theme of this year’s festival – Peace, Love and Petunias – flashing the peace sign as they made their way along the parade route. The festival wrapped up Sunday, but there was still plenty to do during the celebration of all things Dixon. Among the events: Pancakes in the Park, a talent show, music, and more – all capped off by the Petunia Fest pyrotechnics.
