Thorntown celebrated the arrival of fall with its annual Festival of the Turning Leaves this weekend.
One of the highlights of the festival is the parade, sponsored by Knights of Pythias and held Saturday afternoon down the streets of Thorntown. The 2013 theme was Lend a Helping Hand. The Red Hatters, with a red and purple float themed "You're Never too Old to be Helping Hands" won Grand Prize honors. The float featured three senior volunteers, including one in her 90s.
