Looks like Ft. Laud every day of the week.

Great series on your parade. it is nice to see people reminding the world hate is not needed. I am enjoying your other photos also. the carole king and james taylor photos is superb. I am glad you are enjoying the Sedona photos on my website. I hope all is well.

It looks like a very involved community, with spirit.

This looks like a colorful parade!

Birdman said...

Bravo, small towns! There is such flavor of small, ol' town parades. You've captured what it's all about in these shots.

Is this a tradition on the 4th of July?
You,guys take things seriously,and you are absolutely right!

A lovely slice of Americana.

We need more parades like these everywhere in the 'industrialized' country.
Great reportage!

I wish we had more banners like the first one in the world but that's just wishful thinking.

What a great series of photos! But, my dear friend, they raise a lot more questions than they answer. I'd love to know the background of each shot. So fascinating and colorful. Methinks Brattleborians know how to have a good time and put together one hell of a parade!

Great shots of your parade.

Interesting political parade! I was expecting flags and sweets and stuff.

Bob Crowe said...

So what's the parade about - Fourth of July celebration? I've never seen the periodic table in a parade before. It's an idea I like a lot.

VP said...

Full of colors and fantasy...

What a fascinating parade and so different! We have 'manifestations' like this in France - in Nice, for instance - although in Menton they are the more usual traditional parade celebrating a Feast day.

It's great to see youth with a social conscience. What an interesting parade.
