Gov. Conway Days, March 27, 2010 (Part 2 of 2)

The Saturday parade was the largest in many years.  For the sake of neutrality, no politicians appear in the following photos, but they were present in abundance.

As with the previous post, all captions refer to the picture under that caption.

Mayor J. C. Williams once again invoked his perogative to drive the first vehicle in the parade.

And that’s Dickie Bishop on a John Deere tractor.  Sadly, Dickie and his wife, Judy, recently moved from Bradley to the wilds (and grandkids) of north Arkansas.

Several fire departments from the area also sent trucks to the celebration.  Among those were the Northeast Bossier, Plain Dealing, River Bend, Lake Erling and Lewisville Fire Departments.
