St. Lawrence County Dairy Princess Parade - Part 1

I walked from the park and through the village of Canton to get closer to where the parade began. I was enormously impressed with Canton, thinking it was one of the cleanest, most picturesque towns I'd ever seen anywhere. I found a shady spot and watched as the firetrucks led the parade down Court Street:

This antique firetruck carried a giant Dalmatian, waving and throwing candy to the children:

The St. Lawrence County Dairy Princess and her court:

The Little Free Library had a large contingent of marchers:

This farm themed float won a prize but I don't remember who the sponsor was:

PFLAG (Parents, Families And Friends Of Lesbians And Gays) had a large group of marchers and got loud cheers from the watching crowd:

This barbershop chorus was singing, but I could barely hear them over the crowd:

This float was made from a hay wagon and everyone seemed to be having lots of fun:

More fun, more colors, more noise. And all the while, marchers were tossing candy to the children watching the parade:

The FFA float (Moovin' and GROOvin' with the Future Farmers of America):

And the NRA float:

There were a number of teams of handsome draft horses. And yet there was still more parade to see, so I'll post Part 2 tomorrow:
