Popcorn Days in Ridgway
RIDGWAY -- It's the 56th year for Popcorn Days in Ridgway, and the annual tradition kicked off Saturday with a parade. The theme of this year's parade was the Festival of Champions, and the Ridgeway 1973 State Champion Basketball Team were the guests of honor for the ceremony. Eight of the original teammates were part of the parade and several ladies from the 1973 cheer leading squad also took part in the festivities.
"We get to show people that Ridgeway is still one of the friendliest towns that you've ever been in," says Michael Dixon, one of the 1973 basketball team members.
There was plenty of family friendly events going on after the parade as well, including a small carnival with kid rides, games, and of course, free popcorn all day.
