Burdock Parade

What's a Burdock you ask?  It's an edible plant! Read about it here and checkout the pictures, no doubt you've seen one before.


It was a beautiful day and we parked in a good spot to view the parade.  First we walked around the 'intersection' and checked out a shop or two


Then we set up our chairs and waited for the fun to begin


There were a few older vehicles


A drum and Fife band with a sense of humor....perhaps they thought they were a Mickey Mouse outfit!  No.... the parade had a fantasy theme.  Oddly enough the first song was the Yellow Rose of Texas


The Shriners provided some visual excitement


Even slow, old tractors were included as were several fire department rigs and emergency rescue ambulance


Some pipers provided some skirling music












All in all it was a fun parade!  It wasn't very long and I'm sure the party continued after we left
