The big parade was late in the afternoon. It was a beautiful day, not too warm about 74 F and a breeze. Here are some highlights from the parade.
My Mom and Dad waving. Dad was one of the Grand Marshals.
The Shriners from Alexandria with their 1910 Circus Calliope
Miss Park Rapids
Linda’s Recycled Goods…we went to school together.
There was more…logging trucks, towing trucks, fire trucks, politicians shaking hands. the parade lasted about 90 minutes. Many groups threw candy from five gallon buckets… at the end of the parade kids watching had bags of candy.
Chance went along …he was a good boy and just ignored the horses. There was only one dog in the parade and when the owner saw Chance she picked up her little dog. Chance liked the beef stick samples that Main Street Meats handed out!
