More Parade

Hi everyone!
I promise this is the last of the Maple Syrup Festival pictures. But, I just had to show some parade blues.
maple festival 2011 064It is only fitting to start out with the most important “Blue” in any American parade, our flag. I don’t know how any of you feel but, it really is bothering me a lot that very few people stand when our flag is presented. Do they not teach this any more? I wish I could say that the people who didn’t stand when the flag was in front of them were young adults. But, it was all ages.
