Mark Twain Old Threshers Weekend May Expand


The "Old Threshers" weekend continues in Paris, Missouri.

This morning was the Mark Twain Old Threshers Parade.

The parade included Miss Paris, antique tractors, and some antique cars.

Angela Fields, president of Mark Twain Old Threshers Association said in her 6 years of being president, this year is close to the top and she may look to expand.

"We have grown tremendously over the last 6 years, 7 years and so we hope maybe to build it back up to adding another full Friday or even a full day on Sunday."

Fields said the beautiful weather helped this year, bringing more people out to enjoy the festivities.
