LIVINGSTON MANOR, NY (June 10, 2012) – The cloudy, slightly wet weather was perfect for the fishy goings on at the 9th Annual Trout Parade in Livingston Manor on Saturday, June 9.
Pre-parade pleasures included performances by the Americana band Little Sparrow, balloon animals by Dr. Professor Balloon-a-kiss, face painting by Miss Sunshine the Clown, belly dancing by Ahleana and stilt-walking by Brett Keyser and Tannis Kowalchuk of NACL Theatre.
Then a little after 1:00 p.m., the fish came marching down Main Street, led by Grand Marshalls and Sturgeon Generals Dr. Don Simkin and Ellen Singer.
Following were a long line of antique and classic cars, several marching bands including The Mountaintones, floats of all kinds, and many, many more fishy folk and flora.
After the parade, there was more music, a rain barrel auction, and food galore from the many vendors along Main Street, who were also selling books, candles, art, jewelry and more.
The 2012 Trout Parade was produced by the Catskill Art Society in partnership with the Livingston Manor Chamber of Commerce and with support from businesses and individuals from around the community. Proceeds from the parade benefit the Arts and Music Programs at the Livingston Manor Central School and Catskill Art Society.
Following are just a few photos from the parade.
