At the Canada Day Main Street parade. This year was a really long parade. Not a lot of people watching compared to other years. I actually don't think I saw last year's parade, but this one was alright by small town red-neck standards.
My friends' kids across the street waiting for the candy.
My step-dad said that he'd be driving, but he wasn't...
He was behind the cab. He was pointing to us so his partner in crime could spray us with water.I go to church with this man. He used to be Shawville's "Santa," and would dress up for the Christmas parade and then wait in the hall for all the kids. He's passed that honour on to someone else.
And what's a small-town parade without people in a decorated hey wagon?
And a shined up tractor?
When these people walked by, my mother said that they look like a redneck version of the Caribana parade in Toronto every year. I didn't take a picture of the worst offender, but behind these jokers was a girl in a bikini top, shorty-shorts, and a red ballet tutu. Hideous.
Ok, I had to circle this picture. I'd like to draw everyone's attention to the chainsaws not even half-way jammed into that block of wood. And there were little kids driving around on 4wheelers. It was a little scary. Another hay wagon. Now these old broads are the Red Hatters. The prima donna in red did a belly dance in front of town hall. I think I vomitted in my mouth. I just thought this little guy was cool.
This was my favourite part of the parade. I just thought it was so cool.
Cousins of mine. And last, but not least, the littlest fireman.
