I Love a Parade
In a parade like this, we have firefighters and fire engines, fraternal orders, karate studios, high school bands and bagpipe bands, senior citizens, dance studios and old cars. There are East Asians, Brazilians and Italians. Blacks, whites, browns and yellows. Pest exterminators and landscapers. Teacher of the year and police officer of the year. Dog obedience classes. Balloons and clowns. You get the idea.
A few thousand people showed up Saturday on a beautiful early fall day to watch the parade or to march in it.
