Smalltown Parades

As a followup on the previous post of parades in "smalltown" America here are the Troutbirders three grandchildren in smalltown Arizonas holiday season parade...
Well, maybe not so "smalltown" judging by the size of the crowd....:)

  1. What is the definition of a small town? I live in one smaller than 100,000 and think of it as "small." :-)

  3. My favorite small town parade memory is the first time we went to one after Jeffrey was a high school teacher. All his students squealed and hollered and threw candy. You would have thought we were royalty.

  5. Estimated population is around 27,000. In 1990 our same town had only 2,600 people. It was a short parade route down main street packed with parents since nearly every school and club had a float. Really nice for the kids to be able to walk in a parade.

  6. 'Small' towns always seem to provide big crowds for these type of events. You've got cute grandchildren, but I'll bet you already know that.

  9. I find the small town parades always have the best amount of candy thrown out to the crowds. :)
    Good luck writing your Christmas letter!

  11. There is a beautiful feel to small town festivals and fairs. We have one every September in my town called the Spoonbread Festival.
