Last month (yay! I'm finally getting caught up! LOL) was the semi-local Strawberry Festival and it's always kicked off with a Parade. Chris, was once again, marching in it with his JROTC class, so McKayla and I loaded up and headed out there to watch him.......good excuse to see a parade anyway. :-)
We arrived in record time and found us a good spot to park that wasn't too far from the parade route and we found a nice spot in the shade to sit and watch the parade.
I then spotted this little guy/gal hanging out on the hood of a car. He was either stunned or pretty brave b/c I got pretty close to him to take this picture. I wanted to take more, but didn't want to lose our spot.
Before too long, the parade started! And the JROTC is the first to come down the line. You should've seen me scrambling for my camera and trying to find Chris. LOL We were at the END of the line, so it did take them a bit to get down to us. I still think we got a good spot. :-)
I LOVED all the cars they had in the parade. I think the cars and horses are my two favorites of parades. :-)
I loved all the floats too. A lot of thought went into each and everyone of them.
You can't have a parade without a band (or 2 or 3):
Or horses! Yup, I saved the best for last. :-D
|I just LOVE his face!|
|Check out the ears! Too cute!|
|His too! :-D|
It was a great little country parade and a great way to welcome the Strawberry Festival to town once again. :-)
