Really, the Booyah would have been enough, but, in honor of its biggest birthday yet, Suring offered us so much more.
We saw centenarians with twinkly eyes, and babies with chubby cheeks; buggy riding border collies, and horse drawn milk trucks; founders and minions.
Like most small town parades, this one featured its high school football team, but the Suring Parade went one better and also included its 1966-67 high school football team — complete with the Homecoming King and Queen.
Suring residents have good arms and generous buckets of candy, and we spent most of the parade dodging enthusiastically thrown Tootsie Rolls and Twizzlers.
I looked up just in time to see an Oconto County Fair princess firing string cheese from her float. Then a nice man I’d just met offered me a chunk.
We capped our delightful afternoon with a stop at the American Legion Post 283 Booyah Stand for a couple of take-home quarts.
I took so many pictures, I had a hard time weeding them out, so pour yourself a nice cup of tea and enjoy these snap shots of a sweet little piece of Americana.
