Originally scheduled to take place in September 2020, the Village of Hecker was finally able to hold their 125th celebration this past weekend.

While it rained much of the day on Saturday, Sept. 4, the rain held off long enough in the afternoon for the village’s parade to be held at 4 p.m. and quite the crowd came out to view the parade.
