We don't have that many community traditions in my town but very 2 or 3 years we have a big parade to raise money for the local firefighters. Farmers from the rural aereas help by donating fruit, vegetables and animals to be auctioned and the rest of us help by bidding on them. Everything that is donated arrives in decorated cars and they parade through the streets before arriving at the firefighters headquarters where the auction takes place.
Since my brother is a firefighter we always support the cause by buying something at the auction. This year's parade happened yesterday and I couldn't resist taking some photos.
