There were several teams of horses giving wagon rides today as part of the “Old Tyme Day” celebration at the church on East Shelby Road.

Pie, lemonade, ice cream and other treats were all a penny.

The East Shelby Community Bible Church started “Old Tyme Day” about two decades ago. The church has built the West Jackson Corners village across from the church, and continues to add more old-fashioned activities to the annual festival.
