This is the first time we knew of the annual "Anvil Shoot" that starts off the day long celebration. I guess they have been doing it for 27+ years. I'm not sure of the story behind it, I will have to find out. We set our alarms for 4am to make it to the first shoot, then proceeded to follow the "shoot" around town, stopping in several locations, residential or commercial and lighting off another charge.

The parade is attended by a few people.. lol. Why all the covers? A couple of reasons, 1 the sun can be unbearably hot watching the parade so shade is helpful, 2 protection from the elements, such as the thunderstorms that are common this time of year. But mostly......
It was a fun parade, even just people watching.... next year more participation! The fireworks were wonderful but I left my camera at home this time. (these are last years pics) A wonderful show!
Thank you Heber-Overgaard!!!!
