Sleepwalker Parade

Tonight was the 40th annual Rittman Sleepwalkers parade. There was also an appearance in town by one of my favorite morning show hosts, and fellow blogger, Scott Wynn of WQMX and Scott Wynn's Window fame.

I did warn him when the photo was taken for this blog that the last radio people who were photographed for this blog were Paul Rado and Marty Allen, both currently unemployed. However, Scott works for a better company than Paul and Marty did.


Even though this year's parade was interrupted by some rain, it was the usual nice parade.

In the beginning part of the parade, the best high school marching band around made their appearance. the Rittman Indians Marching Band did their usual fantastic job.

One of my usual mistakes is not having enough power in the WIXYcam and my photos were limited. Like I said before, there was some rain during the parade. Caused me to chuckle looking at the kids in attendance chasing after the candy in the rain. I told Scott that it was ironic that we had kids who were going to catch their death of cold and rot their teeth out the same day the president was in the state promoting his healthcare plan. Cliff Note:The previous sentence was in no means intended to be a political statement.

Oh, how I miss the small Ohio town. There's always a Main Street. Looks like a good time, even in the rain.

My son got hit in the head with a lollipop when he was little at a parade -- they can be a health hazard. ha.

Glad to see the rain didn't dampen the spirits of the Rittmanians. Rittmanites? Rittmaniacs?

It was a most excellent parade!! 45 minutes long....I didn't get to hear the band play, they were to Ohio Ave before they started playing....ANd I was on the corner of Metzger & Sauer...disappointed!! Don't know if they'll win any games this year, but my daughter will be cheering, so I'll be there!!
