BESSEMER - The bad weather that hampered the
Wakefield parade earlier in the day moved out, and spectators
would remain dry for the rest of the day.
The King-Size Bessemer Fourth of July Parade
once again entertained the large gathering of spectators who had come
to view the great event. The parade included all the things that
we all enjoy in a great parade: Honor Guards, great cars, fire
engines, floats and five great bands.
The parade also included things we might not
necessarily look forward to in a local parade, and that is
the politicos. It seemed like there were hoards of politicians.
