Although COVID-19 has canceled community events throughout the states, Marion found a way to make the most of things last Friday night.
On Friday, June 19, Marion was bustling as people from all over took to Main Street to enjoy a night out. The annual Summer Celebration, including the alumni banquet, parade and all school reunion were planned to be held last weekend, until COVID-19 hit, but that didn’t stop the town from coming up with a way to enjoy the evening.
A pork loin and Rocky Mountain Oyster supper was hosted by the Marion volunteer fire department along with a cruise night.
According to the fire department, they made and sold just shy of 200 pounds of pork loin and between 140-150 pounds of “oysters.”
Dozens of cars showed up for the evening to cruise and show off their rides.
The evening was capped off with a fireworks display, sponsored by the Marion Area Community Club, Rivers Edge Bank and Donlans.
