Gourd Evening!!
This is my time of the year! Pumpkins, GOURDS, Halloween and parades! We all went to the Columbia Pa Halloween Parade. My beautiful niece Catherine was marching in the parade with her baton school.

My sister Heidi lives in Marietta, Pa the town beside Columbia. Both towns are rich with history. Sorta a Civil War Federal vintage town, the homes are beautiful and the people are great. Nestled by the river, the Civil War soldiers would stay in these towns on the way to Gettysburg.

Columbia was like New York City, bustling with people in the streets just waiting for the parade, the spooky sights and all the candy! Of course all the street vendors selling balloons, pretzels, neon necklaces, hot dogs and coffee.

Abbie had her picture taken with the balloon clown who made a twisted flower and dog balloon.

All the batons flying, veterans bands marching, the smell of fresh peanuts in the air, candy being thrown from fancy cars, clowns on motorcycles, spooky goblins, ghosts, witches, well I think Laurence Welk sums it up!
Check it out!
Gourd Wishes!!
