Memorial Day, May 28, 2018.
It’s 10-something a.m. on Washington Avenue in bucolic Elyria, Ohio.
Pretty much your standard small-town parade: firetrucks, convertibles, every club and civic organization in town, old soldiers, not-so-old soldiers, Marines, etc., firetrucks, candy, marching bands, vintage cars, a beat-up old Ford station wagon (!), no DeLorean. A cemetery.
Some of us might want to rethink the whole Spandex idea
Low. Rider. Goes a little slower.
Took a little jaunt down the pike to Berea for the Rib Cook-Off, the unofficial official start of summer in Northeast Ohio.
After getting caught in rush-hour traffic, I arrived at the Cuyahoga County Fairgrounds to a fairly sparse crowd. Things were just getting started, I guess.
Anyway, here are just a few pics from the day. Nothing spectacular, but the ribs I tried were mighty tasty. I randomly picked Sgt. Oink, one of fourteen vying for the championship. Recommended!
