2022 American Legion Parade

Back in June, I was scrolling on Facebook and saw that some riders I knew were riding in the local American Legion parade. I’ve fallen off with what local riders I knew were doing, so I hadn’t even realized it was parade time. I had enough time to make it, so I packed up my camera and drove over. Riders from Harrisburg and Baltimore met at the Harrisburg Civil War Museum and started getting their horses ready.

There were draft horses,

gaited horses,

And Quarter horses.

If you loved horses, it was the right place to be.

Eventually, everyone was ready. It took a bit longer to get the carriages horses together. But afterwards, the parade was on. A group of kids marched and a group of motorcycle riders drove past before the horses followed.

I walked alongside and took pictures for a while.

The horses are always a huge draw to the parade.

It was a nice parade through Harrisburg and it was fun to see so many familiar faces!

    This is great! Next best to being there. Your photos are not just average snaps but balanced, composed and beautiful. That Quarter Horse portrait is something else! And what good weather they had…
