Many people gathered in the streets of Miles, Texas this morning for the 40th Annual Cotton Festival.
The Festival started off with a parade through the streets where local members of the community could be seen riding on tractors, trucks, motorcycles, horses and antique cars and throwing candy to the onlookers in the streets sidewalks.
The Festival consisted of food & craft vendors, live entertainment, games for both adults or children, cook-offs, a washer pitching contest and the Queen’s Contest, along with other attractions.
Anniversary t-shirts were also sold and a shuttle service provided for those visiting.
The local library even lined the sidewalk out front in order to give away free books.
The festivities started yesterday evening and some will continue throughout the day.
