Small Town Parade, Part 3 (the end).

Wednesday, July 20, 2011

Part 1 of our parade story is here, and Part 2 is here.  Now that you know about the truck and the royalty, let me give you a tiny glimpse of small town parade charm.  They say that out-of-towners come to watch the Wimberley parade because all the residents (and their families) are in it.  I think it must be true, because there were lots of people in the parade and lots of spectators.

This was the view out the back of our truck.  Civil war horsemen (and woman):


We passed this "float" along the way.  He wasn't moving very quickly.


We also passed the feed store, where people had staked out shady spots long before the parade began.



Aren't these pretty horsewomen?  You can't see this, but they're standing right at the corner of the town cemetery.


It's just as much fun to watch the spectators as it is to watch the parade.  People dress for the occasion, the kids are cute as can be, and everyone smiles.  What could be better than that?



Wimberley parade, we had a blast.  Thanks for the experience!





Thanks for reading along, and for indulging me and my photo overload!
