Small Town America

The nice part about living in a small town is that when you don’t know what you’re doing, someone else does – Living Quotes

Welcome to small town America! This week marks our local, annual, Future Farmers of America parade, fair, and auction. Though our town has become a vacationers mecca–offering wine, foodie delights, five-star restaurants, and outdoor activities–when it comes down to it we’re a farming, ag town.

Here are some photos I captured during the parade last night. Our parade hosts fire trucks, floats upon flat-bed trucks, vintage cars, cheerleaders, the school band, the Shriners, preschool floats, 4-H floats, animals, horses, dancers, candidates for office. We live in an All-American farming community and our parade sums it up perfectly.  There was plenty of camo, cowboy boots, Wrangler jeans, silver belt buckles, ag equipment, and cowboy hats to show — we are farmers!

Enjoy the parade!
