Saturday we went to the Alpine Days Parade. I was happy to see it was just as good as I remembered from last year. They must have had 4 different kinds of old hearses on parade!
We were lucky to get seats on the east side of the road, so we didn't have to look into the sun!
The tractors were apropos for a community that has it's history steeped in farming!
They had some little ponies pulling a stagecoach and some giant Percherons pulling a supply wagon. They were both fantastic!
They even had a yellow submarine and a purple octopus!
All four of the mayoral candidates rode in the parade. We were amazed to think we knew them all. The Alpine Nature Center has helped us get involved civically, and we enjoy feeling a part of the community!
Afterwards we walked around the vendor booths and settled on eating a Navajo taco in the park! It doesn't get any better than this!
