Weekend Parades and Festivals-Hasty

All Spruced Up for the Parade


Gilligan and Crew on the Island in Lake Hasty

Hasty turned 105 years old over the weekend.  Residents turned out this past Saturday, September 15, under clear blue skies and mild temperatures, for the 5th Annual Hasty Daze celebration.


Early Horseless Carriage Days



Red Hat Ladies of Bent County


The Bent County Chamber of Commerce sponsored the 10am parade, which circled a portion of town, starting from the Hasty Fire Department and returning to the site.  About 40 or more entries were on hand, ranging from an ornate and true-to-life, “Gilligan’s Island” to devils and angels, classic cars and farm equipment, and a stylish horse drawn buggy decorated with yellow flowers. 

Polished Up to a Bright, Clean Shine


Perfect Day for a Flight or Parade


After the parade, folks either went off for the Turner Antique Tractor and lawnmower pull adjacent to the fire department or viewed the Classic Car and motorcycle show.  The McClave FFA Chapter fired up their grill near the Valley Grocery for their BBQ lunch.  Other residents and visitors strolled up and down the street, checking out some of the homemade baked goods or bargains set up at various yardsale tables. 

Devils and Angels Were a Crowd Pleaser


The day wound up with afternoon fun games for the family as well as a Pit BBQ sponsored by Mountain Prairie LLC and a dance was scheduled for the evening with music from Freddy Darnell and the Country Gold.
