In 2011, the Payne Area Business Association’s musical lineup for the Mexican Independence Celebration drew many fans.

The parade will feature colorful costumes and floats.

Back in 1932, Harvest fest was a huge event along Payne Avenue, and featured banners adorning the commercial strip. (submitted photo)

Last year’s festival was sort of an on-foot trial run with a more modest walking parade, This year, Harvest Fest reboots its full parade tradition, adding back floats, vehicle units, marching bands and more. (Linda Baumeister/Review)

The loudest and reddest entries in the parade: local fire departments’ vehicles. Onlookers always appreciate getting to thank the heroic crews who staff them. (Linda Baumeister/Review)

Full-on parade is back in business
