[photos] I love a parade

Mom and Dad and I went and had an extended Norman Rockwell moment yesterday. Ocean Park, WA, has an annual Fourth of July parade. It’s a classic small town American parade — fire trucks, politicians, police cars, hot rods, dogs, kids on bikes, the D.A.R., and a whole bunch of random stuff. Here’s a small sampling of the day:

There’s lots more pictures, but my bandwidth here is very limited. Check out more at the Flickr set.

    Edsel with a swamp cooler. King Midget. Model T racer (stripped to the minimum needed to run). A clean ’68 Mustang with the exhaust dumps open. 😉 An unexplained small-block Chevy engine on a trailer. And a lot of other cool old stuff. Gotta love small-town holiday parades.
