Our little town (Small town USA), had it's 175th Birthday celebration last weekend. It kicked off with a parade.
Kids and adults dressed in costume from years ago...
One of the city's old firetrucks
This older couple was my favorite. They looked like they just "belonged" in that old car.
And...only in Texas will you find kids riding longhorns!
Wait...what's that I see? Far Left is my oldest son, Justin. His troop marched as well in the parade. They were shouting their troop yell. I think their flag resembles a Campbell's soup label.
Even my husband was happy to be in the parade!
Later in the afternoon we came back downtown and checked out the street vendors and watched the local gunslingers put on a wild west shootout.
We toured the home of the Grandparents of our local mayor. Our local mayor is 92 years old!! He has held that position for 63 years!! The town has erected a statue in his honor. His Grandpa was a Senator. The house was originally very plain, but after his Grandpa traveled to Washington DC and saw the White House, he wanted to add on to the front to have it resemble the White House, hence the columns and oval porch.
Later that evening we stopped by the the laser light show.
Not too bad for Small Town USA!
