Cascade celebrates 175th Anniversary

CASCADE (KWWL) - Great day to spend outside and the City of Cascade celebrating it's 175th anniversary. The Annual Duck Regatta sent one thousand plastic ducks down the river.

It's an event sponsored by the Cascade pom squad. Volunteers spend the afternoon catching the ducks near this park in Cascade; the first five ducks won money. This year the squad launched the ducks to celebrate the 175th anniversary.

"It shows great enthusiasm for what's ahead, in really shows the future of Cascade and what we have to be here for," said coach Abby Manternach.

Other events included a 5k run this morning, a parade, classic car show and a tractorcade. Saturday night entertainment includes a johnny cash tribute band. The celebration wraps up Sunday with a blessing and time capsule.
