Centennial Celebration to feature costume contest

By Katy Haley

DeQuincy’s KCS Depot is 100 years old this year! 1923 to 2023 has seen a lot of changes, but the depot has remained as beautiful as ever!

Which decade is your favorite, starting with the roaring ‘20s, the wartime ‘30s and ‘40s, the be-bopping ‘50s, the groovy ‘60s and ‘70s, the totally rad ‘80s, the grungy ‘90s, the millennial 2000s, the smartphone manic 2010s or the TikTok following 2020s?

We are inviting you to come to the DeQuincy Depot’s Centennial Celebration on Saturday, Oct. 7, dressed as your favorite decade for a “Through the Decades Costume Contest”.

The best costume winner will be announced, and we will take an aerial group photo in front of the depot of the costumed participants to be preserved for future generations to enjoy! We can’t wait to see your costumes!
