Anniversary celebrations seemed to be a common theme during the 88th annual Dodge Count Old Settlers Days parade Sunday in North Bend.

Floats celebrating milestone anniversaries included one for First United Methodist Church, which is marking its 150th year, and Platte Valley Bank, whose giant cupcake marked its 120th year.

Dodge, which celebrates its 125th anniversary this coming weekend, also had a float in Sunday's parade.

Hundreds of people lined the street as fire and rescue equipment, antique cars and tractors and floats made their way to the city park. North Bend Central's marching band, cheerleaders and dance squad also participated.

Kids were treated to candy from many of the parade participants.

The parade was one of the highlights of the final day of the three-day celebration.

Save Seay shared Nebraska Territory stores and music of the real Old Settlers. That was followed by the Many Moccasins Dance Troupe.

Other events throughout the weekend included a car show, tours of the fire department, a Community Band concert and fireworks on Saturday and the welcome home barbecue on Friday. There were street dances both Friday and Saturday night.
