As I mentioned yesterday, Monango celebrated 125 years this weekend. And what better way to celebrate than with a parade! Check out my parade pictures for Wordless Wednesday:
Grandpa drove one of his tractors in the parade.
Auntie B and cutie Cousin N drove another tractor. Showing vet-school pride!
Uncle J also drove a tractor...this time with the NDSU flag!
Uncle B and Aunt L (along with Cousin H and Cousin G) drove Grandpa's Toronado. Hmmmm...we may have too many letter abreviations going on here!
One of our neighbors had a family float, congratulating Monango on 125 years!
Area businesses also came out to support our town. Including cool throw-backs to the old days, like this truck!
Big Bro was in the pageant, which gave a very quick synopsis of the history of Monango...from the beginning of time to present day. Very cute and funny! And Big Bro's acting debut!
I could post a bunch more pics, but I think you get the point. It was a great afternoon and lots of fun for the kids…but the best part was seeing the community coming together. It’s funny how we’re separated by mere miles, but it takes a celebration to bring us together. Here’s to hoping that it doesn’t take another 25 years to see each other again!
We may be rural…but we are not alone.
