Tradition continues with the 27th Annual Gem City Days in Diamond, Missouri.

A large crowd enjoyed an early morning parade featuring the American Legion, the high school band, football team, cheerleaders and more.

Folks also enjoyed live music, a wide array of vendors and, for the first time, a petting zoo.

The event is designed to bring the Diamond community together for some conveniently-placed fun.
