I don't think there's anything that says "America" quite like a parade. The community spirit, the families, the anticipation and excitement of the children...you just can't beat it! Our small hometown of Weeping Water held its annual Limestone/Independence Day celebration this past Saturday, so we loaded up our antique high-wheel wagon and headed to town.
We've had a major heat wave here which broke just in time for the celebration. It was a little cloudy and breezy, but it felt great after the heat and humidity of the past week. Terry and I rode in the wagon and tossed out candy while our brother-in-law, Greg, drove. I didn't get any photos of our float this time, but here's a photo from our county fair parade last summer. My dad is driving one of the antique John Deere tractors he restored.
I had a unique perspective from my perch in the front of the wagon and was able to get some nice crowd pictures.
Our next trip will be to Murdock, NE for their parade July 4th. We wish you and your families a safe and happy Independence Day!
