Waiting for the parade to begin.
The riderless horse led the way.
Traffic jam, like a throwback in time as the old cars lined up.
A small section of the Army brass band played
while a C-130 gave us a flyover.
The pride of Ripley High School: the marching band. They looked and sounded great as they played America the Beautiful for us.
The flag corps get it done!
Who is that driving the vintage fire truck?
Why it's Jack, our mailman!
It was a cold, blustery day, but the good humor of the people waiting to see the parade and honor the vets warmed us all. So did the free coffee being given out by some business owners on the street.
Small town, small parade, but big spirit and big hearts.
