It was a nearly perfect day on Saturday, Sept. 29 at Devils Lake celebrated Homecoming and Fall/Harvest Festivals - all on the same day.

A record number of spectators lined the parade route at 10 a.m. on Saturday morning bundled against the chilly temperatures and brisk wind. No one was willing to let a little chill stop the fun.

The downtown merchants were not to be outdone and provided special deals and fun to stick around for, even after the parade passed on by. There were bounce houses and pumpkins and lots of things to do and see throughout the city, including the City Plaza.

From the look of it, it will go down in the record books as one of the most successful Fall or Harvest Festivals held in the town for many years.

Adding to the success of the day, the Firebirds won the Homecoming Game later that day.
