It seems every Kirkwood resident
came out to line the streets Saturday
at the downtown parade route . . .
to wave at the marchers, the bands, the floats
and the local dignitaries (of course)
in this year's Kirkwood Greentree Festival parade.
Magnificent! Best parade year ever!
(So hometown. Andy Griffith would approve.)
(It's a '59 Ford Edsel, turquoise, original. SWEET.)
