People park their trucks and cars all along Main Street the night before the parade. They gather on tail gates and in the truck beds with friends, family and refreshments the morning of the festivities. Here they are, anxiously awaiting the beginning of the parade!
So, I write this blog because I love design, and architecture, and art, and houses.............and the Texas hill country. Sometimes I get distracted or busy with life. Sometimes I can't think of anything I want to write about - and sometimes I have more ideas than time.
Right now, I have some great (at least I think they are great) ideas for posts, but they require some research, some communication with others, some thought. This post requires no thought - just photos (and a few captions) of our County Fair Parade held last week. It is the quintessential small town parade and I just love it.
A few of the coolest kids on the block got together and created this "float" for the parade. They were all members of the 45 Best Stores in Texas poll taken a few months back.
The Gillespie County Fair is big here - really big. There is no school the Friday of the fair, shops and even banks close during the morning, and people line up all the way up and down Main Street to watch and cheer for their friends. Just about anyone can participate, and boy, do they!!
Local cool dude on his scooter with other bikers from the community, all representing our local scooter store!!
Of course, the high school football team - GO Billies!! (The mascot is the billy goat - yes, really.)
This year the Gillespie Country Fair Association decided to honor our hospital for it's years of service. The big wigs got to ride in a 1962 Cadillac driven by the car's owner!
I could not begin to catch all of the tractors on parade, but this cute old fella with his great blue tractor with the red tires just captured my eye................
