Enterprise Elementary students are celebrating Enterprise's upcoming 120th birthday by taking a trip back to the past and marching in a Main Street parade Thursday, May 14.

Students are coming to school dressed in pioneer clothing Thursday to get them in the mood.

Many girls are sporting decorated bonnets and many boys are wearing beards to remind everyone of the beard-growing contest that will be judged during this summer's celebration.

Grades K-3 plans were to spend the morning traveling from classroom to classroom to learn about a variety of exciting pioneer activities. Hide-tanning, spinning, quilting, bread making, butter making, Dutch oven cooking, and horse shoeing will be demonstrated by various members of the community.

Students are also viewing a collection of pioneer antiques and enjoying a wagon ride around the block.

Afternoon plans include a parade at 12:30 p.m. Grades K-6 plan to march on Enterprise Main Street and the parade will be led by mayor Irv Nuss.

Students will carry banners representing their classrooms along with birthday signs.

The public is invited to watch the parade and join the students in wishing Enterprise a happy birthday.
