WADENA — Rarely has so much blue and gold been seen in one place than Wadena-Deer Creek's Homecoming Parade Friday, Sept. 30.
Under gorgeous fall skies, downtown Wadena was filled with all grade levels as well as community members all ready to cheer on every school activity and club. Even some community businesses joined in the fun to add to the candy-throwing merriment.
The highlight of the event, Queen Ella Stroeing running down main street (in high heels no less), handing out high fives and hugs to her adoring fans. The brief moment that she hopped back in her chariot, with King Koby Endres, they were stopped in the road by Ella's dad and Koby's mom who knelt down and bowed before them.
The new royalty has clearly risen to stardom in record time.

The royalty happened to be paired up from the start.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
