The 84th annual Henning Area Festival was held over the weekend and featured a big parade on Friday and the demo derby on Saturday (bottom left and right). Among the entrants in the parade was First National Bank of Henning, Ottertail and Battle Lake who threw out candy to local children. Participants on the Vining Watermelon Day float threw out some beads, while the Carlisle Band belted out a few songs on Friday night. 

The Henning Festival Parade featured entrants from the Henning Haunted House and the Henning School. Matt Goedon waves to some of the people watching the parade on Friday. 

Brogard Plumbing, Heating and Excavating’s float featured a stuffed bear peeing into a toilet with a special message on Friday night.
