...because we don't need an excuse!

Several times a year,and for reasons which continue to elude me,the residents of O-Town gather about the streets and back alleys of our little shire to spend the day drinking beer,eating chili,and generally misbehaving.
As you might imagine,this works out quite well for me!

The festivities begin with a grand parade down Montgomery avenue.
I've prepared a brief synopsis of said paradage,in video format,for your shopping convenience...Enjoy!

Afterwards,we all head downtown for an afternoon of well organized debauchery.

This is where we can force small children to scale great jagged monoliths,..

..or throw Little Newt down a steep incline! ...5 times.

But this isn't the only form of entertainment to be had.
There's an absolutely astounding array of classic cars lining every possible nook and cranny.










PLUS!..The Hell's Angels annual picnic and gang bang coincides with the celebration!

As the day draws to a close,I head over to the craft fair at Sank Park,and pick up this little beauty to add to my genuine reproduction tin sign collection.

All in all,it was a rip roarin' good time!

Comes now,the time to wish all they that qualify,a Most Happy Mother's Day!

Really all that to celebrate feathers?

Anyways the video was great, and your local Auld Hat fan club is very colorful.

The cars a great.
Happy feather day to you!

Sage- I think it has to do with O-Town being located on the banks of the Feather river.
We still have the Salmon fest,and Perry Mason days ahead of us!

I love a good parade and something to celebrate. For a real celebration you should go to Fruta, CO, and help celebrate at the Headless Chicken Festival. Just google headless chicken and read all about it.

Damn. There better be a frakkin' parade/street fair/tin sign selling event while we're there. Or we can all just throw Lil Newt down a steep incline, eat chili and call it a day.

Sounds like a great community. I'm all for debauchery and rip-roarin' good times. I think any day's a great day for a parade.:)

a party isn't a party without those fun loving hell's angels.

yellowdog G.- Oh we had our share of drunks.
The estimate was that 8,000 people lined the street for the parade!
It was also estimated that 3,200 of them were named 'Bubba'.

mom- I've been to Fruita.It was only about 20 minutes from where I lived in Delta.
Sadly,I missed the headless chicken festival.

Mouse- You're welcome doll!

Rainey- You want a parade?..sigh..
If it will make you happy,I'll see what I can arrange.
(damm high maintenance,mumble,grumble..)

serena joy- Boy howdy,you'd love it here!
These people throw a parade at the drop of a hat.

Billy P.- They're a great bunch o' fellas..They let me keep my bicycle this time.

YAY! lol
I for one must own that ginormous hat.
Also, those old timey cars really turn my crank. (har har har)

Okkeedokee I tried to post last night and it biffed me. So here we go again.

I like your town SLing. It's much like Idahodee land. Quaint, old fashioned, family friendly, and seems a like good place to raise Newts. Not that we don't have our fair share of moose-nappings, but it is a ton better than So. Cal where HHM and I existed for years when the folks were still alive. Once they passed away, we headed for the hills and never lked back. Now we can enjoy those homespun parades like we did many years ago. Thanks for sharing Sling. Really liked the video and pix.

I just read your comment on yellow dog grannies blog...if you really want naked granny's number we need to talk. I am here to help. I know a lovely lady I can introduce you to...well not really a lady, more of a man in a dress. but he is very nice. How about it?

Whatever happened to Sonny Barger?

 
At 10:31 PM , Blogger Sling said...

Hat-Tasia- ..we're even for the ferret reference. :)

citizen- I heartily agree!
Next time I stop at 7-eleven,I'll pass your kudos on to the Mayor of O-Town after he rings up my purchase.

CS- I'll say it just once,and if asked under oath I'll deny it,..
I love this town! :)

Boy- Sage put you up to this,didn't she!

Oliver- Sonny Barger now lives in an exclusive gated community in Florida,under the alias,'Morey Feinberg'..

You had me at "beer". You kept me when you got to the part about throwing children down the steep incline - repeatedly. Good times, eh?

:)

And a good time was had by all.. I admit, I enjoy all those local celebrations we have- especially if it also involves food and booze.

 
At 10:12 PM , Blogger Sling said...

kari- Alcohol and child endangerment were only part of the fun!..The county Fire department throws a kick-ass chili cook off!
Buck a bowl and all proceeds go to to help the FD.

doralong- It was fun.
There were thigs to see and do,as well as food booths all over town!
.and I have to give our local cops credit (just this once) for keeping a low profile,and letting everyone enjoy themselves.

Lost in the 50's comes to our little town this weekend...probably a lot of the same cars...I noticed there were fewer breasts in this years pictures.

 
At 4:53 PM , Blogger Sling said...

rosemary- So many breasts,..so little time!

I'm going to start one of those genuine reproduction collections just because it sounds fun. Nice sign and beeeootiful cars. Where's the bouncy castle? (I guess that giant slip-n-slide makes up for no bouncy thingie.)

You O-types got it down. Start early. Start very early. SB doesn't do too bad in the one-festival-a-week department, but they wait til ... I don't know. They're not drinking in the streets and flinging chili around fests, so I quit paying attention.

 
At 6:00 PM , Blogger Sling said...

booda babe- No beer?..No chili?.. What the heck you guys do in SB for fun,go to the airport and have yourselves paged? :P
