Guilford Fair Parade

Lining up the tractors.

Nathaniel and Jonathan stand by their restored tractor.

The first of many fife and drum corps.

The beginning of the tractors.  This one was pulling 4 hay wagons full of kids, pumpkins, mums, decorations and a few cows.

A restored Farmall that belongs to our neighbors.

My brother Jonathan on their tractor.

I told Ed that this is the kind of tractor I want him to restore for us! A two-seater!

The middle school color guard.  The high school and middle school bands and cheerleaders did a great job as well.

4-H members and llamas.

One of the elementary schools had little covered wagons that sported “Go Green or Bust” signs.

The theme of the parade this year was “Cowboys,” as you can see from this float.

The library float.

More fife and drum corps.

Even more fife and drum corps.

We all enjoyed the parade, including my mom! Then it was off to the fair!

  1. I love the 4-Hers with their llamas. Do they raise them for fun, or are they used to guard sheep?

  2. I loved the “Go Green or Bust!” slogan from the elementary school children. Good for them for walking and not riding on a float! It was so much fun re-living some older memories of taking you and your brothers to the parade when you were just toddlers. Whatever possessed you to include that last shot?
