Although it’s a little deep into the celebrations to begin a running Strasburg Hometown Days post…better late than never, right?! Updates will be added on top (right under this introductory paragraph).
What a great start to a beautiful day! Although normally we’d be at church on a Sunday morning, our new Strasburg church plant doesn’t start up until next Sunday…so off we went to check out some of today’s activities, starting with a delicious breakfast at the Strasburg Elementary School sponsored by the National Honor Society.
After that it was time for Mr. Ed’s Cool Classic Car Show…and this video will give you a little flavor of it:
I didn’t videotape every entry, but the gallery a bit further down will include photos of every vehicle that was there when I was.
So…we have breakfast…an amazing car show…what next?! Mud volleyball of course!:Continue Reading
We did end up doing a little yard sale shopping…although it was kind of late in the day for it. That was followed by the Chili Contest (sponsored by 4 Rivers Equipment) and an entertaining High Plains Music Ensemble concert (sponsored by Strasburg Veterinary Clinic and IREA). Michelle and Augie taste-tested the six entries and made their votes as I Facebook Live broadcasted most of the concert, which you can watch here:
We didn’t stop there…heading over to watch some Colorado Vintage Baseball (sponsored by the Friends of Strasburg Metro Parks and Rec):Continue Reading
Up early ’cause the munchkin wanted Burger King (in Centennial) for breakfast, and we had to line up for the parade at 8:30. Translation: Awake before 6AM. My proof:
A beautiful view after a night in a backyard tent, eh?
Either way…because, as Cubmaster for Strasburg Pack 439, I was marching in the parade…it meant I had to take all my photos and videos before or early-on (as I walked toward the back where we were placed). While we were waiting, I really liked this amazing cheer done for Strasburg Rocks! viewers by the Strasburg Parks Cheerleading Camp:
“We are Strasburg!” Well, at least Sparta and Strasburg both start with an “S”! 🙂 The girls did great, didn’t they?!
I’ll wrap up this first post of the day by posting a gallery of very quickly taken pictures…along with two Facebook Live sessions. (I was either doing Facebook Live and taking pictures at the same time…or doing Facebook Live and interacting with parade watchers…so please be kind with your comments. :-))
I started vacation last night, so we are trying to make the most family time. Mom had to run out to get something for Cub Scout Pack 439‘s float (see it in tomorrow’s Strasburg Home Town Days parade)…and Augie wanted to go to Taco Bell for breakfast.
So, we climbed in the car…and even though it is a hybrid…we do need to get gas sooner or later. That’s where we got to see flags that that same Pack 439 put up:
