One of the highlights of every Legion convention is the parade. This year in Minneapolis was no exception!
We had gorgeous weather- just cloudy enough to keep the bright sun away, and temps in the mid-70's. Cant ask for much better. After scouting out a good location along the route (a yearly task) we settled on, what else, an Irish-style pub called The Local. Outstanding food, great drinks, and prime parade-view location. What's not to like?
The parade was led by the Minnisota Corvair Club- which was especially fun since my very first car was a 1965 Corvair 140 (all you 'Vair phreaks will know what that means):
She seemed pretty enthusiastic about it all, and got waves from everyone in the parade, too! Here's the video:
Yours truly marched with the usual gang from China Post #1 (of which Matt, Jimbo and I are all members). No faces to protect the innocent and prevent the guilty from running:
Here's a few other videos from the parade- from the 'Vairs, to the Legion Ride for Recovery bikes (an AMAZING feat, and I'll have more on them later- its facinating) and one bizarro bike: made from the front end of an old Olds Toronado with a 455 engine in it..
