As a change of pace this year HHBL and I went to the Memorial Parade in the next town over. We heard through the grapevine (OK the mayor is a friend of HHBL’s) that it was an excellent parade. And indeed it was.
We started with a cookie from the local lemonade stand. This was a school project for these kids. They had to write a business plan, get a “loan”, get all the pertinent permits, decide the charity that the money they earned would be donated to. We had to buy something from them.
Of course we started with a salute to the flag. The local high school marching band stopped by the pavilion down the street and played the National Anthem and people sang…quietly.
Then it was on to the parade! How about I just show you what I saw without too much commentary.
The only downside was that the weather was cloudy and on the cool side. The upside was that I ate a chocolate chip cookie AND a Red Velvet cupcake.
Hudson puts on a pretty darn good Memorial Day parade.
