Everyone Loves A Parade

Is it true, even with the traffic, the road closures and no seating available at your favorite coffee shop, that everyone loves a parade?

The marching band, the Boy and Girl Scouts, the fire trucks and proud firemen, the mummers and bag pipers (who apparently got frightened away by the weather this year – they were missed for sure), the youth groups from Poppy Girls to karate demo teams and gymnasts. ┬áLet us not forget the Veterans, the very reason for all the hoopla and flag waving and clapping – we mustn’t ever forget.

All of these proud people, showcasing Americana at its most local community level and our neighborhood as spectators, proud participants and supporters.

The red, white and blue…

I do hope that it’s true.

It is such a part of our childhood and the threat of rain had me a bit down…until they announced it was ON! I do hope with all of my childhood joy and wonder, how I hope that everyone loves a parade!
