New parade route for Kimball Days

Because of safety and cost issues, the Kimball Days parade will no longer close down Highway 15 in Kimball on Sunday afternoon during Kimball Days. Instead, the parade will begin in the parking lot of St. Anne's Church and finish in the outlot of Arnold's of Kimball (on the west side of Hwy. 55). No highway closure issues, no $3,000-plus in sign rental and sheriff/police time.

At one point, but only briefly, the parade was changed to Saturday morning. The parade has been returned to 2 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 15.

Also, there will be fireworks Friday night, Aug. 13.
