Rally in Valley parade

The parade alone was a sight to behold – an endless procession of vehicles big and small, showcasing every corner and pocket of the community and demonstrating an intense feeling of pride that persisted throughout this year’s Rally in the Valley event.

“(Rally is) good time for people, for community to come together and get out and celebrate whatever it is they want to celebrate,” Tracey Compson, events coordinator for the Valley City Chamber of Commerce, which was the primary mastermind behind the Rally, which has been a tradition in the Valley City area for almost 40 years now.

“It’s got a long long tradition,” Kay Vinje, Executive Vice President for the Chamber, told the Times-Record. “People love to celebrate Rally in the Valley and they love to come back home for it, whether it’s reunions or just knowing there’s going to be a ton of people in town.”
