Larry and Lorna Azevedo hosted their annual 4th of July Parade and Picnic in Corrales, NM. In addition to the Tin Lizzies, the Azevedo’s invited, and are also members of, the local Model A club (the Pocos Quatros “Little Fours”), and the V8 Club. The attendance was fantastic with seventeen Model T’s making an appearance on this warm and sunny Saturday.
Everyone met at the Azevedo’s early in the morning to decorate their cars and drop off any food items for the potluck picnic that was to follow. At 9 AM, everyone drove to the staging area at the beginning of the parade route. The time waiting in this parking lot is filled with socializing and enjoying the summer weather. When the parade did start, the O’Brien’s and the Ross’ firetrucks led the way. As usual, the parade was rather slow, with more time parked than actually driving, but it was well-attended with spectators lining the streets of the Village of Corrales for an “old-time” parade down Corrales Road. Outside of a couple of cars stalling, the parade was great fun and a success!
We enjoyed the rest of the holiday eating tasty hamburgers and hotdogs provided by the Azevedos as well as numerous side dishes and deserts. What a wonderful way to spend a fun and relaxing 4th!
Thank you Larry and Lorna for making this a wonderful and memorable 4th of July!
