One of the aspects I enjoy about living in a rural area are small town parades on the 4th of July. Although I do have one minor critique… a little too much emphasis on car culture. I would love to see more walkers, bands, dancers, horseback riders. My one exception to that is, of course, that I certainly don’t mind ogling a classic car here and there! Here is a sampling of what we saw at the Jay, New York parade.
ambulance crews, ems, fire trucks, and many other vehicles make up the majority of participants – a good chance to give your local emergency crews a hand… many of whom are volunteer in this area
in my estimate there were many more observers than participants in the parade – all ready to scramble for candy
dressed up for a Jane Austen play they were promoting
now these are the sorts of motorized vehicles I love!
therapy animals – they were all charming miniature donkeys wearing visors
a cool 1967 Porsche at Jay Craft Center
this awesome car was found after the parade – parked on a country road
loving the details!
she cleans up real nice!
