What's a parade without the color guard? I would love to see everyone salute the flag as it passes. So many things fall out of custom with disuse.
We didn't have many of what I think of as traditional floats. I missed getting pictures of the horses, shriners, firetrucks and other individuals.
The implement dealers participate by showing off their new equipment. Many are so big they can't go down the street with out removing parts.
The theme this year was: Thrills, Squeals and Ferris Wheels, so this combine shows some spirit.
The kids enjoy it all. There is so much candy thrown that they bring sacks to collect it in. Reminds me of Halloween. My youngest grandson has his mouth full as he reaches out for more.
It's okay to eat stuff I pick up from the street today, isn't it Mama?
