Laveen Arizona Annual Parade

 

Who doesn't love a parade? 


Our annual parades are typical of small town parades everywhere. The whole community participates, the street is lined with families and there is fun for all.


 It all started with a fly-over by biplanes.

 Laveen Arizona Annual Parade

The beginning of the street level events.

Laveen AZ Parade

Laveen has some subdivisions where there used to be fields of cotton, barley and alfalfa. There are, however, lots of fields left. Lots of small acreages and people keep lots of livestock. We also have a few large dairy operations and those of us with the good fortune to live here cherish our rural roots.

No Parade is complete without the Shriners

 The Laveen Art League Exhibit.

 

The Charros of Corona Ranch were my choice for best entry.  They were preceded by a Mariachi Band.

Only Andalusians (Pura Raza Espanol) and Lusitanos, their Portuguese brothers; grow mane like this.

Marching bands are a parade requirement.

 

Lots of groups were not featured here, the parade lasted an hour and a half. One of the great horse-drawn entries was the final entry.

 


 

Laveen Arizona is an awesome place to live!

Debb,

It was a fun day.  My non-footballers yielded to the temptation to join a football party and canceled.  I now have them in the category called "buyers in no hurry". 

Karen,

Thanks!  Owning an Andalusian is one thing I have crossed off my bucket list, We owned her until she died.  They are marvelous, people oriented horses and they can grow mane and tail like no others.  I do love it here...

William,

The photos were shot with two different cameras.  We are pretty good at the stills, our video skills are seriously lacking. Thanks for stopping by.

Carie,

I do live in a good place and never tire of celebrating that.  My wish is for everyone to be as happy with the place they call home as I am.
