Here are the photos I took before my camera, with fresh batteries, mind you, decided to stage a coup' and die on me.
Every county in the Commonwealth was represented in the way of marching bands as well as various dignitaries, etc. Here's just a bit of the parade ...
|Hard to see it, but the Capitol is festooned in blue and gold bunting ... very festive!|
|LOVE a peaceful demonstration during a politically charged day.|
|And so it begins! The parade is escorted by the Frankfort Police Department|
|US Army Color Guard|
|A better photo of the Colors|
|Yay for the Color Guard!|
|Army National Guard Band|
|Here comes the Governor and his First Lady!|
|Governor and Mrs. Beshear|
|Lt. Governor Abramson|
|Former Governors ... sort of a bunch of party poopers. They showed up, but they didn't all ride the horsy carriage.|
|Mustang Troop from Lexington|
|It's not a parade in Kentucky without the Pooper Scooper Brigade!|
