This summer is flying by. Hard to believe we’re only a couple weeks away from August. And, that means we’re also only a couple weeks away from the Payson Old Settler’s Picnic.  The fun will get rolling with the opening ceremonies at 5pm on Friday, August 3rd.  On that Friday night, the Payson Old Settlers Queen competition will be decided.  Saturday afternoon around 1pm will be the Grand Parade.  A full schedule of events is below and also at the Payson Old Settler’s website.
