St Johns is Something Special: St Johns Parade 2010 Rocks It
It was a great parade, as always. Today's sunshine brought out the best in everyone.
Hot rods and hot hair...
Citizen of the year Steve Duin (whose sign had a corrected typo)
Ribbons shown with pride
Our City Commissioner rode in a car with a front license plate that read Redneck Yacht Club
And you could even say Commissioner Fish had balls. Keepin' it classy.
We saw lots of friends, and even our dog Wink did too.
And passion on a flat bed truck. This drummer rocked it.
See more photos from the parade today here.
See you next year, St Johns parade!

Love it! I wish I didn't have plans this morning!
why was nick fish's car mooing?
I think I remember this post from years past too. How fun!
OK, let me just say I hate those balls things. Probably because I live in redneck Kansas.
I was so confused as to how Ronald McDonald got to be the Grand Marshall.
Also, you were like 1 block away from me (and on the other side of the street).
(Also, did I black out during the parade, or was there really no Beaterville?)
I love Commissioner Fish, I just found the car he was riding in to be, er, not in alignment with his brand? Yeah, that's it.
Little Bay Root - You missed a great parade!
Chook - Yes, his car was mooing. It really was.
Lewis - You have a good memory, and yes, I blog about it almost every year. :)
Heather - I do too!
Amy - I'm so with you: Ronald is just not what he used to be. I thought he had retired. And you are correct: I cried that there was no Beaterville. However, there was the St Johns Circus, and the Steampunks!
I attended only one St Johns parade (the one with the Code Pink contingent at the end ... ) but will attend no other - until the ladies who seem to have a stranglehold on the event sharply restrict the number of combustion-type vehicles. I recommend that parents think a bit before attending with their young children - all that pre-catalytic exhaust is totally unfriendly to air breathers.
