Putnam County's annual homecoming parade took place over the weekend.
Bands from every high school in Putnam County performed for hundreds of spectators who gathered on the lawn on the courthouse in Winfield.
The event aims to bring people in the community together while celebrating the county in which they live.
"I like seeing people I haven't seen for a while. We've been in this area for about 30 years or 30-some years and you get to know a lot of people and the only time you get to see them is at a gathering like this, so it makes it pretty nice," Cookie Smith of Scott Depot said.
The Lions Club sponsored the homecoming parade.
