Peach Festival held in Cobden

(KFVS) -

More than one thousand lined the streets of Cobden Ill. on Saturday for the annual peach festival parade

The parade nearly doubled the town’s population for the day.

The fair as a whole featured the crowning of the “peach queen” in a beauty pageant, carnival rides, and a variety of local and visiting vendors.

The theme this year was “Appleknocker Pride” in honor of the area high school’s baseball team, who are the Illinois class 1A champions for 2015, according to the festival's website.

The festival was sponsored and organized by the Cobden Lions Club.
