Thankfully the fireworks show began at 9:15 after the National Anthem was sung.

In the eighth annual float decorating contest, there were only three entries. The Sunfield Historical Society won with their entry which represented the farming community including Tim & Amy Rumfield, Ken & Pat Hancock, Kyler Doney and Brian Schultz riding the antique children’s tractors and waving to the crowd. The Hickey Farm float came in second place and the Sunfield District Library Reading Program took third place.
