Watching a small town parade is a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon. Add warm temperatures and beautiful weather and you have a day made in holiday heaven. We arrived an hour before the scheduled start time in order to ensure a great picture taking spot that allowed for easy exiting after the parade. As it turned out, our chosen spot was perfect. I do not know who or what group was in charge of the holiday parade, but I must say kudoos to them. This year's parade was one of the best I have seen. I was totally blown away by it. Although the parade pictures do not do it justice, they will allow you to see a few of the wonderful participants of the parade.
