Sorghum Parade

There is nothing like the anticipation of a small town parade on a cool fall day:


The marching band.  Hey, I know pretty drum major Carli!P1020211

The thrill of getting candy thrown right to your feet.  More, more, say our wee ones:


The colorful floats:


Hey, Haley cutie!P1020222P1020206

And music:


The rolling stuff:P1020248

I see Uncle Joe in that Jeep…P1020203


Cars, and other four wheelers; dignitaries, dancers, and even a string of bikes:


And horses…hey, Jessica (the gal, not the horse)!:


MM used to have pooper scooper duty at the end of the parade many years ago when he was in Kiwanis Club.  Now that’s a duty he certainly doesn’t miss!

It was a mighty fine time here in Mayberry on Saturday. Yep, small town at its finest.

Happy Monday.  Life is good, y’all!  Savor the day.

Come on up for a visit, Sarge (IF you bring Bee too)! It was a lovely day. The fall color is absolutely gorgeous now too.

How fun! They still have parades in the small town where I grew up. Not so, here in the semi-big city wannabe.

Big hugs xoxo

I so agree. The fourth of July parade in Bridgeport is exactly like your parade. Nothing finer.

Have a fabulous day. Big hugs to you both. :)
