My Daddy would help me decorate my bicycle with crepe paper the night before the big parade. My bike didn't have a basket like this one, but it did have a headlight. Daddy was very creative when we decorated my bike, I was always so proud!
The morning of the parade everyone would meet at the old depot. As we rode down Broadway the sidewalks were crowded with people waving & cheering us on. The parade ended at the Library where all the kids were treated to popsicles.
I love my childhood memories! So sweet! Life in a small town during the 50s & 60s was wonderful!
