Granada/Bristol & Wiley, Hot Fun in the Sun


Temperatures climbed into the mid 90s this past Friday and Saturday for the annual Granada/Bristol and Wiley Hay Days.  Granada/Bristol residents lined their streets at 10am on Saturday for the parade which highlighted the 23rd annual festival.  The frog & turtle race, Argie’s Famous Flyover and horseshoe tournament rounded out the activities, as well as numerous vendors and activities in the park on Saturday.  A benefit supper was held on Friday at the Granada Complex.  Proceeds will be used by the towns’ first responders and fire personnel.

Nancy Perez was this year’s Wiley Hay Days Queen, joining the ranks of royalty that stretch back to 1976 for the community.  Perez led the parade crowd of dozens of floats and participants of all ages, while most on-lookers settled in under a few choice shady spots along the route.

Activities included the 9 to Noon Kid’s Carnival at the Main Street Park, as well as the annual Lion’s Club Sloppy Joe Dinner.  Following the 1:30pm parade, townspeople cooled off with the annual ice cream social at the Community Church lawn.  There were a lot of participants for the Janea Aguilera Memorial Coed Softball Tournament at the school baseball field, people stopped to check out the car show and stuck around for the ping pong ball drop, courtesy of Tinnes-Air Care, the Legacy Bank Duck Race, turtle race and the community pot luck dinner, featuring Smokin Willy’s brisket.
