Good weather and a full schedule of events brought plenty of people to the Nashville Sesquicentennial this past weekend.

“I haven't seen this many people having fun in Nashville for years,” Sesquicentennial Planning Committee Chairman Kermit Douse said at Friday's opening ceremony.

Events were spread all across Nashville, including Barry County Brewfest, food trucks, old-time demonstrations, a parade, pop-up historical museum and more.
