I Love A Parade!

Our little town of Twisp had their annual Fourth of July parade on Friday. We are definitely small town America!

From the requisite fire trucks to horses and local "floats", there was a little something for everyone to enjoy. The kids especially enjoyed the candy being tossed out but it sure made for a few anxious moments for me.

The best part of the parade for me were the fire trucks. Every 100 feet or so, they'd stop and spray the street in front of the one truck. The kids would rush out to get soaked and even I got a little wet which was fine on a hot summer day. Too bad my camera shut off on me while taking pics. Either my battery died or it timed out waiting for the fire trucks. Its a waterproof camera so the spray wouldn't have done it. I didn't notice that it was off and I was snapping away! Oh well, there's always next year.

Enjoy the parade!
