It was a beautiful day, high in the mid-80s, and with a cheeseburger in hand from the local church stand I sat down to do some people watching and await the start of the parade.
Across the street from where I was sitting is Glen Elder's pride and joy, the 1926 Norris Service Station. The National Register-native limestone structure was purposely built to resemble a castle. It is up for sale if anyone is interested.
Ah! The parade starts!
Send in the clowns . . . .

An interesting car, and from Beloit, Kansas, as I overheard one nearby conversation stating.
Pride on Parade
After the parade the entire community partook in a barbecue blowout in the street. All the positive qualities characteristic to small town Kansas were strong this day.
After arriving back home I discovered that my camera was accidently set on the lowest DPI setting, so many more great photographs will live on only in my memory - along with the two excellent cheeseburgers!
