Some Fun Pinks In the Parade

Hi everyone!

As all good small town festivals, the Maple Syrup Festival ended with it’s parade. I thought you might enjoy some of the “pinks” in the parade.

  10. That is one seriously PINK concrete mixer.
    Like the others I still get a thrill from small town parades.

  11. Love small towns, especially the parades. Your little princess is adorable in her pink shirt. Good for the owner of the pink concrete truck. What a victory and way to announce it! Happy Mother's Day to you. When I think of Maple Syrup it is always Vermont (I am from the NE) but your cowgirl and such make me believe this parade is more Midwest. Don't know any Carson City or Sheppard in VT. Wherever, parades are a wonderful part of life. Thank you for sharing.

  12. That looks like fun. I also love small town parades!

  13. How pretty! I especially love the steamboat float!

    HaPpY pInK sAtUrDaY!

    Happy Mother's Day.
    Hugs, Jeanne

  15. I live in a small town and enjoy the parades so much!! I always get choked up because of the excitement everyone feels to see their loved ones waving at them. LOVE the pink cement mixer truck! But, you had the prettiest princess of all.
    Blessings and Happy Pink Saturday!

  16. Small town parades are the best. Our home town still has them and they still throw out candy, too. Have a very Happy Mother's Day,

  17. That would be a fun event to attend. At least it provided you with plenty of pinks to share. I love their syrup and would love to visit there.

  18. Love all of the pinks from the parade. I really love that pink truck!

    Happy PS,
