Friday Features - Labor Day Parade

I hope you're all geared up for Labor Day Weekend! I know I am! My parents get here Sunday and my small town doubles in size with all the festivities on Monday. One event I always enjoy is the Labor Day Parade. So I went searching on Etsy to find items that remind me of our annual parade.

As a kid I remember wanting to go for all the candy!

As I got older, the parade became about playing in the marching band.
And yes, I carried the bass drum!
 

There are always lots of horses at the end of the parade. And when I was just out of high school, Jesse and I rode double in the parade one year :)
 

And there are always lots of fire trucks...from my own town as well as the neighboring towns.
 

 I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

  3. Carrying the bass drum is a nightmare as far as I know! I have played in marching bands (I play trombone and euphonium) but bass drum? Wow! Heavy and hard.

    Thanks so much for linking up!

  6. How fun! Our town has a parade in the little downtown area, but we're not going because it's a nightmare to get around! Small streets aren't meant for lots of traffic. :-)

  7. Great finds! Do you have photos of you with the drum and of you and Jesse on the horse? That'd be cool to see! My dad was the fire chief of our small town so I got to ride on the truck with him during parades!
