Margaretsville Days with parade, art, and ice cream

Annual community event popular with locals and tourists alike

Margaretsville was the place to be this morning as community members and visitors alike got together for the annual Margaretsville Days that included a kids parade, a community yard sale, games for the kids, and a 'Paint the Village' event that saw artists perched in various locations to capture the local land and water scapes.

Boats, the lighthouse, water, and the wharf featured prominantly in most works of art. A few sprinkles of rain forced some artists to paint under plastic or umbrellas.

There was ice cream and hotdogs for the hungry.
