The above photo is not of a Halloween parade, despite the kids in costumes.
Back when Ambridge had a summer playground program, it would hold a parade featuring the kids who had participated. This is more evidence that Ambridge once used any possible excuse to have a parade.
This is the first photo with me in it I've posted on the blog. I'm the dark haired girl closest to the camera, walking behind Raggedy Ann. My sister Paula is the little blond girl next to me. I think my sister and I were supposed to be dancers after taking a curtain call and receiving bouquets. I appear to be wearing my tap shoes. I wish my legs had remained proportionally that long as I grew.Visit ambridgememories.blogspot.com for the complete article.
