Memorial Day 2018
This is my hometown…~ Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band
Monday, Memorial Day, dawned with the sky was as gray as a battleship. However, the threat of rain never amounted to more than that – just a threat.
My little hometown held it’s annual Memorial Day Parade and it reaffirmed how much I like Allentown.
The parade saw future farmers and current farmers, a number of local sports teams, Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts, equestrians and old cars and clowns and Shriners and hot rods. Best of all, a nice crowd of people sitting on the curb or folding chairs, taking pictures, shooting video and cheering for those doing the parading.
I kind of like my point of view as a parade participant. I get to walk with Chase and Matt (Liv was up a bit with the Girl Scouts). Snapped a few shots with the little P-n-S. Think the one that leads off this post is the best of the lot – the crowd in front of the small business, Matt tossing candy, the kids in the front happy to get some.
A good start as we march into Summer 2018.
