Seriously, last year we had a 3rd of July parade.
At first I was able to justify the reasons. It's Market Days weekend, the crowds will be too much, etc. But now it's a 5th of July parade?
I'm starting to wonder.
Anyway, we arrived early to claim our spot (and parking place) and then headed to the cafe' for breakfast.
We enjoyed breakfast with friends and managed to take long enough eating that we only had to wait about 30 minutes for the parade to start.
Here are some of the highlights.
This is the current sheriff (driving.)
This is Jesse. He built this 'scooter'. Behind it he's pulling his wife in a re-mastered radio flyer wagon.
Cowboy action shooters.
The boy scouts' float this year. They always outdo themselves ....... and everyone else.
The only problem with the parade (aside from the heat) was that this is an election year. There were at least as many (if not more) 'floats' telling us who to vote for as there were community organizations and 'just for fun' floats. I guess that means the parade may be downsized quite a bit next year.
And it's anyones guess when our town will actually have the 4th of July Parade. The 4th is on a Monday next year. Maybe we'll actually get to celebrate on the actual day! Gasp!!
