Yesterday was the kick off for the Lonoke County Fair. We had the most wonderful parade which may not seem like much if you’re from Chicago or LA but here in small town America we thrive on these things. Everyone comes out and lines up their lawn chairs along the parade route. This is actually an event that we look forward to each year.
The Fair Queen and all her minions travel along the route in borrowed sports cars. The local florist advertises her business from the shiniest red tractor.

The cheerleaders shout their loyalty for the fearsome Jackrabbits.
The High School bands demonstrate their musical prowess.
The end of the parade is always my favorite for then you will see horses and riders all psyched up for this weekend’s rodeo.
I do treasure our little town and our small town ways. I wouldn’t trade it for anything. So, Y’all hitch up yer boots and come on out and join us for a bronco bustin’ good time!
