The color guard started the parade. (That's our neighbor, Miss Samantha, one of our cat sitters! She's going to be 16 years old in August--I can't believe how much she's grown!!)
There were rescue trucks from EVERY close town around here. In total, 17 of these firetruck/first responder-type vehicles were in yesterday's parade.
Free watermelon slices served!! yum
A pretty good crowd turned out yesterday for the festivities. It was supposed to be a 'little cooler' than the 90's we have had this past week, but it got to 91! The humidity wasn't quite as heavy as it had been, so it WAS a little more pleasant.
The annual 'tractor pull' for little ones, along with a little help from the City Administrator (who was running the contest).
