Wilmette's 2010 Memorial Day Parade
After the flag, a convertible followed with the local VFW (Veterans of Foreign Wars) officials.
While a number of World War II vets watched the parade, two cars of World War II veterans rode.
The second car had only one veteran, but the car was notable for its cuteness.
Of course, elected officials marched, too.
A large contingent of children rode in their Radio Flyer wagons. We were quite taken by this Prairie Schooner model.
The Cub Scouts marched in the Memorial Day Parade.
And the Boy Scouts marched, too.
The parade ended with a fine display of Wilmette Fire Equipment just as the first raindrops started to fall.
Hope you are having a very nice Memorial Day, and thanks to all our veterans and their families.
