Fort Verde Days Parade

Every October Camp Verde, AZ has a parade, as part of the celebration of historic Fort Verde in what is called Fort Verde Days!
Here comes the parade!
Here is the parade route!
This is a cute parade entry! 
Here comes the park service!
It's always fun to see Smokey!
Looks like the cavalry has arrived!
Here is some Camp/Fort Verde history!
The stagecoach has arrived in town!
I don't who the Murdock family is, but they must have some history here.  I'll have to look into the significance of the family name.
Here are the Murdocks!
Yay for beer!
It's the VFW riders.
I love this style of H.S. band uniforms!  It's the Camp Verde H.S. band!
The Camp Verde Assembly of God Church has some rockin' music!
King Kong appears ready for action!
It's the Historical Society!
What's a parade without candy being thrown and kids grabbing as much as they can!
It's the end of the parade, but only the start of the fair, car show, and craft show!  Fort Verde Days is always a lot of fun!
