Sandy Mountain Festival Parade
SANDY MOUNTAIN FESTIVAL PARADE
July 9, 2009
It was only fitting for me to participate in the Sandy Mountain Festival Parade since I consider Sandy my home town now.
I asked a longtime friend, Rollin Zaugg if he would drive me in the parade in his 1942 Dodge Command car that he restored and he graciously agreed! Again we decked the car out with flags and flowers and the kids dressed in their matching dresses and/or shorts and shirts.
We were entry number 6 in this parade and it was fun to ride in front of the hometown crowd. There was much cheering and clapping as we progressed along a fairly short and all downhill parade route.
The grandkids looked great in their matching clothes and cowboy hats. Two of the youngest grandkids rode in the car with me and Rollin drove. The weather was perfect. The kids waved flags along the parade route, even the 3 year olds in the car with me!
We took second place in the car carrying . . .category. YEAH!
