Junction City's 4th of July Parade was this morning. It has been several years since I have attended a parade, basically because I usually ride in them LOL. However, since TJ was marching this year we could not ride the motorcycle so I had to watch it. I must say I prefer riding in it. I get to see a lot of people I know and it is just so much more fun.
I went down early to get a good seat. First I went to McDonald's for breakfast. Then I staked out a great place under a tree. A nice lady joined me. Soon her friend came. More nice people came along. Then rude people who stood in the street so staking out that place early was for nothing. I will stick to riding in the parade, thank you.
I did get lots of pictures, though(by standing up, too). We will start with law enforcement and emergency services
Next came the military
See the dude 2nd from the left(our left, their right) carrying the cased battalion colors?
That's my husband!!
General's Mounted Color Guard
JCHS Color Guard and Band
Eckrich Meats (they were handing out free hot dogs!!)
It's not a parade without the Shriners riding mini motor bikes and cars
Our HOG group(whom we usually ride in the parade with!!
I have ridden on the back of this CanAm and totally want one
There was a giant gap in the parade and most people thought it was over and left!! I knew it wasn't over, but decided to leave anyway. I went and got a deep fried poptart(excellent -- better than a regular one)
and a final lemonade
Anyone else go to a parade today? Do you like parades? Ever ride in one?
