Ringelspiel Days, Boyd

The season of summer festivals is upon us.  Today, I headed over to the village of Boyd for their annual Memorial weekend celebration:  Ringelspiel Days.  "Ringelspiel" is the Austrian German word for carousel... but locals say it stands for the more literal "circle of fun."  Although the festival is three days long, I only went to the parade:

Start of the parade

Stanley-Boyd marching band

Fire and rescue trucks always have the best candy...

Though Smokey was tossing frisbees...



Newly crowned Miss Boyd and attendants

There were almost a dozen floats for local "Misses"... but Augusta had the most synchronized waving of all...
