As cold waters to a thirsty soul so is good news from a far country. Proverbs 25: 25

I shot this picture in my hometown where they have a trout festival parade every labor day weekend. The girls that were on this ride were selling bottled water for the thirsty parade watchers on the street while the balloons waved over their heads. Number 8 who was walking across the street was selling a bottle of the refreshing water to a customer on this grab shot.

When I grew up in this town the population I remember was 210 at that time ...The trout festival parades began about 20 years ago.

    I agree with Don, this is an excellent entry! I cannot imagine living in a town with a population of 210! I am sure that everyone knew each other and it had to be a peaceful place to grow up in.

    Small towns are wonderful, and this parade is one of the reasons why! My town had a population of 1400 when I moved here in 1974. Now it has reached almost 8,000; I liked it better in 1974!! A wonderful theme entry, Andrea!

    Thank you all for your comments and faves...Susan I was surprised to learn that the population of the town where I grew up has shrunk down to 196, but then with so many of the older generation dying and others moving away sometimes that happens to small towns. They always have a crowd though for the parades who travel from miles around to take part in the activities on labor day weekends.

    Looks like they had a good turnout for the parade. Love those balloons and the wonderful detail in this excellent capture.
