Carnival rides soared through the air as Montgomery Fest drew crowds to Montgomery's downtown and to Montgomery Park Saturday, Aug. 10.
Featuring carnival attractions, local businesses and vendors, the annual festival brings visitors and residents together every August.
Special events on Saturday included firefighter water fights, where two teams of firefighters spray water hoses at a bucket suspended between two trucks, to get the bucket closer to the opposing team's side, similar to tug of war.
The fest continues on Sunday, Aug. 11 with a 1 p.m. parade in the village's downtown.
