Community comes together for Jasper Days

Community comes together for Jasper Days

Downtown Jasper was the place to be Saturday as the community and guests celebrated Jasper Days.

The annual event is a good way to bring people together in the Missouri farming town. And with vendors, free food, and fun events throughout the day, there was something for everyone. The biggest draw though, was the parade that featured lots of candy.

The event was organized by the Jasper Chamber of Commerce as a way to celebrate the people that make Jasper a special place.

“I think it’s very important to get the local community together in general. Gets all the communication out there. Everybody gets to know everybody and what’s going on, and it keeps everything up and together and running,” said Amy Sisseck with the Jasper Chamber of Commerce.

Various Jasper Days events actually started at the beginning of the week for the festival. But Saturday was the big get together and grand finale to wrap up the celebration.
