Parade in a Small Virginia Town

On Saturday we saw the Newtown Heritage Festival Parade. It's the 250th anniversary of the town, now called Stephen's City, which was founded in 1758.

The parade was not as elaborate as the one we saw a few years back on Woodstock's 250th anniversary, but it was fun and nostalgic.

The soldiers made me think that in some countries this is reality: armed soldiers policing the streets.

However, the military trucks had antique tags.
