I had the privilege to be the official photographer for the Belpre, Ohio Homecoming Festival 2016. It was the 84th anniversary of the town’s festival. Running over three days, the Belpre Homecoming is chocked full of activities for people of all ages – pageants for babies to adults, car show, live music each night for various tastes, parade, mile run, fishing competition, puppy pageant, carnival rides, craft vendors, local business booths, food trucks, and a duck pluck to raise money for the next year’s festival. I photographed the evening activities for about five hours each day, and it was tons of fun to interact with the local people and see everyone having a great time – despite it being VERY hot and humid outside.
Congratulations to the winners of the Belpre Pageants:
Miss Belpre – Kirsten Hannah
Miss Teen Belpre – Ryleigh Hannah
Junior Miss Belpre – Taryn Johnson
Little Miss Belpre – Shyanna Miller
Little Mister Belpre – Karter Fry
