WAYNESBURG, Pa. (AP) — It's just a sprinkle, but it counts enough for people in Waynesburg to celebrate Rain Day.

The Washington Observer-Reporter said ( ) the brief precipitation makes for the 114th time in 141 years that some sort of rain has fallen in the southwestern Pennsylvania town on July 29.

The street festival includes the crowning of a Miss Rain Day.

The newspaper says the rain was reported by the mayor and a Rain Day committee member, on whose notebook a few drops fell.

Every year a celebrity wagers a hat that it won't rain in Waynesburg on July 29. This year's loser is actress Patricia Heaton.
