In July Altona, my home town, holds the Manitoba Sunflower Festival. It starts on Friday with a few things happening around town, but Saturday is the big day. Everything begins with the morning parade :)
Waiting for the parade to start. Right to left - Brad (hat), Heather (Logan's girlfriend), Logan, Luke and Zach (friend of the family)
Why does the first thing in a parade have to be bag pipes? Not my favorite sound.
We are only 6 miles from the ND border, and there are quite a few Americans that come up for shopping and the Festival.
Apparently every guy needs a motorized bar stool?
I want one of these!! But maybe in yellow or red.
Just what every one needs! A motorized couch :) The gentleman in red owns the local Furniture store.
Brad wanted a photo of the truck with bubbles.
Last summer Luke worked at Fort Garry Fire Trucks in the Engineering department. Altona was getting a new Fire Truck that year and Luke even got do design a few small pieces for it. This is the Fire Truck.
Since it's a farming community you have to have some machinery in the parade :)
I didn't take photo's of every float or entry - that would just take too long! Stay tuned for Part 2.
