Templeton celebrated its agricultural heritage Saturday with the annual Founders Day Festival, this year kicking off with a new cattle drive down Main Street at high noon.

Afternoon festivities had something for everyone — performances by Main Street Dance and the Templeton High School drama department, bluegrass music, a blacksmith demonstration, tours of the Historical Museum, kids’ games, crafts booths, and plenty of antique engines, cars and tractors to check out.

The crowds had plenty of culinary choices by food vendors, local breweries and wineries, and the festival’s second annual Rotary Chili Cook-Off contest.

Founders Day was hosted by the Templeton Chamber of Commerce.
