Taken by a newspaper photographer and published in the Bolton Evening News in I believe 1972. My sisters and I were in the Rose Queen Parade. Here, I am telling my sisters to act like ladies and stop messing about. All the kids in our Sunday School were involved. Every church in town had their own Royal Ensemble, and on the big day, all came together for a big parade of Queens, Princesses, Prince Charmings, Ladies in Waiting, Train bearers, flower girls and the like.
Recently in the next town, My dear friend Deanna had her daughter in the May Day Parade, as a princess in the May day Parade.
Does your community do similar thing and were you ever involved in anything like this?
