Residents of Pinch celebrated their community during the 117th annual Pinch Reunion.
The Pinch Reunion is the longest running reunion in the nation, dating back to 1902.
“I think its wonderful,” said organizer Angela Brown. “It is the perfect opportunity to show our kids what community can be and what it should be all about.”
More than 100 people gathered along Reunion Road to watch the annual parade. The festivities also included a 5k, a bake-off, a kid’s carnival, and a concert.
“I love that everybody here loves where they live,” said 10-year-old Mackenzie. ” Its just a really special place.”
The celebration continues Sunday with the Pinch Reunion Worship Service, followed by a free picnic and gospel sing.
