Croakerfest Parade

Every time Jack’s been subjected to the Ralston family home movies he wonders if all we ever did was watch parades or march in them. Well that’s life in a small town, and we grew up in two of them. It’s been a long time since we’ve experienced a local parade and it’s great fun.

We started out at The Bean for a bagel and a cup of coffee.

Then found ourselves a prime viewing spot for the parade.

We were pretty excited to see our new friend the electronics technician/trombone player again.

And here’s another use for those plastic gallon jugs that keep piling up.

We didn’t enter the tractor raffle.

I have to say this is the first time I ever saw a church float in a parade.

These guys were wildmen and did manuevers and blasted music and threw candy to the kids, as did most of the paraders.

After the parade we walked through a yard sale on our way back to the bikes and saw this thing. We don’t know what it is, but it has a Steelers sticker on it.

    Is it a yinzer trap?

    It is a gizmo that you tie around your waist, put grass seed in the canvas bag, walk along the dirt, turn the crank and the grass seed scatters. Jean

We love to hear from you!
