Norwood Park Memorial Day Parade photos

We were a little late arriving this year. It couldn't be helped. My regular photographer brought a very young assistant with her this year and said assistant had to be off-loaded on Grandpa before my photographer could set up.

We missed most of the politicians and the squad of riflemen dressed in uniforms from the Revolution to World War II that set off a volley on our corner.  My photographer may have dawdled a little on purpose; she thought her young assistant would have some problems with the gunshot noise (and she did have trouble, later on, when a muscle car revved too loudly as it went by).

But my photographer was able to capture a lot of the groups that came out to honor America's fallen heroes in Norwood Park's 2013 Memorial Day Parade.

And you can't have a parade without bands....

No neighborhood parade is complete without lots and lots of school groups, scout troops and packs.
