not just any parade, though. the bainbridge island grand old fourth parade! obviously i have a soft spot for it, seeing as how it's my hometown and all. but still... such fun!
it's a small town, so there are tractors.
but also sailors. oh, the sailors!
and what's a parade without bagpipes?
... or drums?
... or high school flag wavers?
... or kids scrambling for candy?
... or kids in general?
