The parade, which stepped off at 1 p.m. Sunday, was one of the key events of the 45th annual Good Old Days festival. The fest ran Thursday through Sunday in downtown Winfield.

This year's theme was "Cheers for Volunteers," and the parade paid special tribute to volunteers who have kept Winfield going over the years.

The spectators who lined Winfield Road cheered the floats representing the Winfield Public Library, Winfield schools and the Winfield Historical Society. The DuPage Marines Color Guard received a standing ovation, and the crowd clapped and danced to the sounds of the Community High School marching band.

Most of the floats and cars that went by threw handfuls of candy out toward the crowd, causing children to scramble for the treats.

"My three daughters are competing to see who can get the most," Logan said, shaking her head a bit.

In addition to the parade, which was organized by the Winfield Junior Women's Club, the Good Old Days festival included live music, food, craft vendors and carnival rides.
