Every year on the first Saturday in May the whole town is ready to watch, or participate in the Apple Blossom Parade and Festival. The theme of the parade changes from year to year and for 2008 it is“St Joseph Families, the Heart of Our City.” Many businesses in town consider the theme and build floats, don costumes, decorate trucks, pull trailers loaded with employees and their families and toss candy and treats out to the kids that line each side of the streets.
For many years Evans Realty has participated in the fun, and this year we plan to do the same. Our broker has been “Kong, King of the Realtors” in a movies tribute year, “Mr Monopoly” the year we had the board game theme, he wore tights and a cape the year we paid homage to “Heroes” and this year…well we have to keep it a secret until after the parade on Saturday.
For weeks our office has been busy with Float Building and besides the float that represents the theme of the parade, Evans Realty will once again have the float featuring the Junior Apple Blossoms Queens. This is an honor and we are lucky to have them.
The floats have to line up about 6:30 am and the parade begins at 10. Some energetic REALTORS will be there early, others will join in later but we usually have a great turnout in support of Evans Realty and of course the Apple Blossom Parade.
There is great competition among the float builders and the winner for the best float will be announced at the end of the parade.
