Parades are done differently in a small town!
More pictures after the fold. You can click on any picture to enlarge.

You’ve got to appreciate a big ol’ KW in the parade! This picture is especially for John Hitchcock.
And this is what the KW was pulling: the Albrightsville Post 294 Veterans of Foreign Wars
You’ve got to like the car for State Representative Doyle Heffley (R-PA 122nd), but that’s not Mr Heffley in the car; that’s him walking behind the car, doing what any good politician should do: throwing candy to the kids! 🙂

There were lots of cool cars in the parade; here, a dune buggy, in metal flake green.
The first of many firetrucks; the sign notes that the driver served our country for 26 years in the United States Navy.

Our only Republican County Commissioner, Wayne Nothstein, is an Air Force veteran.

How many of our soldiers have ridden in a truck like this one?
Army JROTC. It looks like the major marching with the cadets has some work to do on instilling discipline!
