Default Montevideo (GA) "redneck" Christmas Parade

For the part 30 or so years there is a "redneck" ( as they call it ) parade in the rural community of NE GA called Montevideo. Over the years it has grown and now thousands of people come to watch and an equal number are in the parade.

The parade has no bands nor people marching, instead folks can bring whatever they want to ride for the 2-3 mile parade. There are vehicles ranging from riding lawn mowers to 18 wheelers. Those in each vehicle throw out candy to the thousands of children lining the country road where the parade is held.

Yesterday it was 50 degrees and cloudy so folks were bundled up. The parade lasted 1 hr and 35 minutes and was non-stop. Needless to say the horses were last for obvious reasons.

I had not been to the parade in around 15 years. It is larger now and there are lots more spectators lining the road. It was just a good time out in the country.

Right you are, Alan. The parade always draws lots of folks and everyone was having lots of fun. As you put it so well, "a good time with smiles all 'round".
