Here Comes the Parade

My apologies- this is a belated post, I was hoping to catch up on my posting during the winter school break, but since the switch from Bakersfield College to Cal State only left me with a week and a half off things piled up quickly. I’m back in school, fighting off a cold and hoping to get some posts done before the homework assignments pile up. Going back to November I managed to make my way downtown for Bakersfield s Veterans day parade and take a few pictures. In fact I got carried away and took more then a few which is why it took me so long to edit them all.

Between the various military organizations and their impressive floats and vehicles, most of the areas middle schools and high schools marching bands turned up which made for a very entertaining morning. There were also car clubs, horse riders and of course since this is Bakersfield an off road club that entertained everyone by driving up each others tires as they went.

I hear these guys practicing down the street from my home all the time- nice to see them in performance 🙂

Hmmm-get a lot of naked folks leaning on your truck do you?

Eventually it was time for me to depart as I’d agreed to join my parents for Lunch at Milts diner (celebrating the 50th anniversary of the diner) So I made my way out of downtown but it was quite a parade.
