Hundreds of Newport area residents celebrated the city's annual Pioneer Day Sunday at Pioneer Memorial Park. Families snacked on fresh corn on the cob and other festival food, kids bounced around in a large inflatable jumper and other festival-goers enjoyed a car show, craft sales and other entertainment that followed the Pioneer Day parade.
