The University of Wisconsin-Platteville Marching Pioneers step to the beat of their own drums as they entertain parade-goers on Main Street.

The City of Platteville celebrated the 67th annual Dairy Days last weekend. The “Just Say Cheese” themed event included fun for the whole family, including an auto show, tractor pull, cattle show, antique market, live music, “dairyokee,” midway rides and the almost famous deep fried cheese curds.
The parade, which lasted over an hour, drew families to line Main Street before Sunday’s festivities continued at Legion Park. The long-running three-day festival took  place Friday through Sunday and is the largest single event held in Platteville.
