Every year on the second Tuesday in July our community celebrates Parade Day. It is loooong, so many hours. Mostly it is noisy service vehicles and very random elected officials (county coroner anyone).
This year the girls and I met up with a friend and her kids and together we endured this community tradition with good humor and sun protection.
It was loud when the firetrucks, police cars, ambulances went through. Otherwise it wasn't as loud as the girls made it out to be.
