The Optimist Club of Jasper, organizers and sponsors of the 2017 Jasper Strassenfest Parade, in coordination with our financial sponsors, Prairie Farms Dairy, are happy to announce the winners and honorable mentions of the event. I will be delivering the award plaques as soon as possible. We want to thank each of you for participating in this year’s parade and coming out despite the impending rain. I must say, I was thrilled with the limited rain we did get. We hope you had a great time with your family, friends & co-workers and hope to see you next year!!
