St. Urho’s Day Parade

It snowed another five inches plus.  The snow on the highway was melting.  We followed a snowplow and a long line of traffic to the parade.  The little village of Menahga had snow down the center of their streets. Their snowplow guy might have been in the parade.

The parade was a little late getting started.  Musta been on Finn time:)

Here comes the parade

A young Nyte flag bearer.  The older Nytes seem to be recruiting quite a few kids..what fun for them!

The grasshoppers were escorted out of town in grand style.  The grapes will be safe another year!

It was a wonderful little parade..it lasted all of 7 or 8 minutes.  Chance watched it  from the curb,  he was a real good boy and didn’t bark at the horses..he just watched them:)
