Exeter Volunteer Fire Department Street Dance

Softball, street dance and silly kids were the theme in Exeter this last weekend. Despite some rain Saturday morning the two day softball tournament brought teams from all over to compete before heading downtown to the street dance Saturday evening.

The Exeter Volunteer Fire Department served some great barbeque along with the band, "Who's Bill Anyway." The Exeter Chamber of Commerce sponsored the kiddie parade whose route ran through the blocked street to lots of applause.
