GOLDEN CITY, Mo. — Four state residents travel to Golden City for a 100-year-old tradition.
Golden City held the Golden Harvest Days this week with many activities for people to participate in.
Visitors enjoyed a parade, square dance, and bed race.
Residents even competed in a junk art auction, where five gallons of metal junk were used to make a masterpiece.
Compared to years past, attendance wasn’t as high due to severe weather this past spring.
Allen Rice, Golden Harvest Days Committee Chairman, says, “We’re down a little bit this year. We’ve got people still trying to bail hay, plant beans, things like that, and so that’s kept a few people. Obviously the heat’s got a little bit to do with it too, but we’ve had good crowds.”
At the end of Sunday, around 500 people stopped in Golden City for the celebration.
