LAFONTAINE -- The Ashland Days Festival took over the streets of LaFontaine again with this year’s parade, Saturday, June 8. The police cars, tractors, motorcycles and trucks driving through, with those inside throwing candy to scrambling children, marked the peak of the festivities.

Commemorating and celebrating the history of LaFontaine, the festival began Friday evening and carried on into Saturday with even more food, games and events. Pete Dupont, a LaFontaine resident, brought his 2-year-old grandson, Steele, to see his first parade.
