While there weren’t as many entries as usual in the Mayer Daze Parade, the enthusiasm was overwhelming. The first entry was the American Legion posting the colors and leading the parade. Next came Judge Rummer, the Grand Marshall, passing out candy to the kids (of all ages) in the crowd.

Mayer Schools Marching Band was exemplary with marching and playing to entertain the on-lookers. Then came an array of vehicles, both personal and county owned that were decorated and put on display for the enjoyment of the crowd.

Thanks to the Sheriff’s Office Volunteers in Protection for helping with traffic control and leading the parade safely through those busy streets of Mayer.
