We move on to one of the larger and certainly most impressive political candidate entry in the Johnsburg Saufen und Spiel Parade today.
It was upon me before I realized it was coming, as you can see from the first photo.
Maybe it was the big float, but there also seemed to be a fair number of walkers.
Politicians encourage people to walk with them to impress people of the depth of the support they have.
Behind Smith’s contingent was opponent Tina Hill riding in a convertible.
The Hill folks stopped so I could take a posed photo.
The candidate has not figured out how much I don’t like posed pictures.
Joe Tirio, the third candidate in the race, was not at the parade.
After running the photo of the big Republican elephant, I was impressed by the big pig from the McHenry State Bank.
“172 years,” says the banner from St. John the Baptist Catholic School.
Behind the banner carriers was a float.
Johnsburg’s Sunrise Rotary had an announcement in the parade about its Oktoberfest.
Next came a McHenry Chamber of Commerce entry promoting an annual breakfast for Veterans on November 12th at the VFW, plus a networking program.
Next to catch my eye was a girl twisting in the air.
It was as if she saw the sign in the background and decided to follow its direction.
Joyful Harvest Church was next–the only one I saw in the Saufen und Spiel Parade besides the St. John the Baptist School entry.
Then came the magnificent horses.
The wagon behind the Clydesdales had a sign from the “Very Blessed Jarrett Wolff & Family,”
That was pretty much it, except for the loot that kids were examining.
