The Firefighters Parade

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.

  1. Sounds like a fun day! Thanks for sharing.

    Have to ask though...were they selling calendars? LOL!

  2. LOLOLOL no they weren't, but now that I think about it's an idea full of interesting possibilities. I must suggest that for next year. ;-)

  3. LOLOL I actually told my brother that but with him being kind of shy I'm not sure he's going to promote the idea. ;-)


I love to chat about books and stuff and I would love to hear from like minded readers. Please do leave me a comment :-)
