Hundreds lined the streets of Motley during the June Fest Parade June 18, despite temperatures in the 80’s and high humidity. The approximately 70 units participating in the parade included fire trucks, classic cars, a military band, law enforcement vehicles, horses; and floats representing local businesses and service organizations. Children of all ages enjoyed collecting candy and other goodies thrown from the floats passing by.
