DUENWEG, Mo. — Locals honor a hometown hero during the 6th D-Towne Jamboree and Duenweg Celebration Day.

The festivities brought out people to enjoy great food and entertainment.

The city of Duenweg even had their brand new fire truck on display for everyone to see.

During this year’s celebration, the city commemorated former Fire Chief, Allyn Reding, who passed away in July.

Russell Olds, Mayor of Duenweg, says, “It’s about community spirit and getting everyone out, kind of like the 4th of July or something like that. Only, without really a purpose other than getting out in the yard and enjoying it.”

Olds adds he hopes the event continues to grow with even more people coming out to participate in their day of events.

The evening concluded with a fireworks celebration.
