Ruthven will be celebrating 125 years this weekend in conjunction with Bully Bullhead Weekend. Everyone loves a parade. Pictured above is the Ruthven school band in a 1956 parade. The Quasquicentennial Parade is scheduled for Saturday, July 11, at 1:30 p.m. The parade starts on Old Highway 18 SW and routes throughout town. Activities are scheduled throughout the weekend, including recognition of the Citizen of the Year on Friday, Parade on Saturday, and a Progressive Organ Recital on Sunday. Join the fun and help the community of Ruthven celebrate this weekend.
