Mayer Daze

Took a drive down the road to Mayer today where the locals are celebrating Mayer Daze (Days). I got there just in time for a typical small-town parade. Lots of military . . .


The Pony Express riders . . .

A small motorized cart pulling a wagon with rider . . .

Motorcycles . . .

Lots of horses, including this Clydesdale . . .

A local bagpiper . . .

Pretty girls on horses . . .

Representatives of the Sheriff's office (who look like they've had a few too many doughnuts) . . .

Some miniature donkeys . . .

With all these equines, there have to be pooper-scoopers . . .

A shoot-out near the bank . . .


Some wild women of the west . . .

And more motorized vehicles . . .


After the parade, a stroll around town found a beautiful turkey . . .

A llama . . .

And a chance to get a close-up look at that Clydesdale's hooves.

All in all, a pleasant day in Mayer.

A thoroughly American experience . . .

Wonderful pictures, and I liked the humorous commentary that went with them.

I love parades!

Catalyst said...

M.I. - I think the small town ones are more fun than the great big ones.

I love the pretty girls' horses' pink and blue socks, and the turkey's just gorgeous!

Looks like a lovely day, and a lovely set of pics!
