SWISHER– The community of Swisher held its annual Fun Days celebration Friday and Saturday, July 26 and 27, with fair skies and sunshine Friday evening, and a post-parade downpour on Saturday.
Friday festivities included the annual Kids Tractor Pull, Human Foosball and Swisher-based band The Twang Gang. Saturday saw a heavy rain shower slide just to the north of Swisher, with heavy clouds and intermittent light rain throughout the parade. However, shortly after the conclusion, the clouds opened up. The morning kicked off with the Jefferson-Monroe Township (Swisher) Fire Department’s 5k fundraising run.
