I am posting a few pictures here of the Parade of Lights on Friday evening July 8. If you want to see the other – more than 380 – go to my Facebook album https://www.facebook.com/doris.j.high/media_set?set=a.10153725095042322.1073741853.612697321&type=3
The trucks met at Kidron Auction.
An early arrival.
Drivers made sure their rig looked good for the parade.
There are several businesses in the same lot that attract Amish customers.
Going camping. I talked to them a bit. The reason I knew they were going camping.
The truck parkers were kept busy between 4 PM and 7 PM as more than 250 truck arrived.
Gary moved the chapel in position to lead the parade.
Hot dogs, pulled pork sandwiches, and ice cream were served to those who wished to eat.
The Stockdale Family Band provided fabulous bluegrass and gospel music.
I think she is their mascot.
She kept her hat on for the few seconds it took me to take the pictures.
Gary giving instructions to the drivers before leaving on parade.
The parade route was lined with viewers.
We went to Mt. Hope Auction to get most of my daylight pictures.
The chapel arrived her at 7:48 PM.
It was a nice place to view the trucks.
We stayed here until 8:09 PM when I began loosing light – and we wanted to be on the other side of Mt. Hope Auction when the trucks began arriving in the parking lot.
By 8:42 PM the area above the parking lot was filling up with others anticipating the arrival of the Parade of Lights.
It was a great place to watch the sun set.
The chapel arrived at 8:56 PM.
It was quite dark by the time the last trucks arrived.
The Joe Mullins Radio Band closed the evening.
I think it was about 11:00 PM when we left Mt Hope Auction.
It was a fabulous evening.
