Center: Community Service Officer Kris Wilson putting up the no parking signs. Kris’ vehicle says on the back: “This vehicle was seized from a drunk driver.” The police department evidently has 3 or 4 vehicles that have been ‘seized’.

Here’s the lineup for today’s festivities. It’s not easily found on the Northfield Chamber’s website but Ross Currier has the Crazy narrative on his blog.
