A little slice of Americana

July 3, 2010 by Judy Trull

Rodeo weekend is upon us and Manawa is abuzz with activity.  This morning was our 52nd annual rodeo parade, there was a plethora of entries.  It is a small town parade with big pride.  Some of the entries were promoting upcoming events in our area, such as the Symco Thresheree, the Old Iola Car Show, Bear Lake’s upcoming Beach Parties and many many more.  There was an exceptional entry as well, Tim and our dog Abby pulled the Chamber of Commerce float with our Lindsay House Bed & Breakfast vehicle.  They were quite a pair, enjoying the parade from a unique vantage point. Still much more action is to be had for the rest of the weekend at the Rodeo grounds, lots of broncs, bulls and babes as the radio announcer says.
