Thanks Sandra, for a small town this is really a nice tradition to carry on. The vintage autos were wonderful.

Agreed Larry, it is a very nice celebration to carry on. Only drawback is not many folks turn out for the parade, but there's always an overflow at the celebration afterwards.

Hi Susie, maybe you will post about the events in your town. Your poem was lovely.
