Bon Air Victorian Day Parade

On Saturday, GPA Richmond participated in the annual Bon Air Victorian Day Parade. Bon Air is a beautiful and historic village just outside of Richmond. During the late 19th century many Richmond residents began escaping the heat of the city by spending their summers in Bon Air. It's a wonderful area.

The parade was a blast, and was especially fun at the end because everyone clapped and cheered as we walked by. The Greyhounds were a big hit with kids young and old, and all of the "resident hounds" made sure to bark their protestations!

On our way to the parade start we picked up a clown hitchhiker. He was a hoot.

Getting ready to line up.

Harvey doesn't miss a chance to relax.


Jackson spies some horses.

And we're off!

Harvey (with his grandma!) greets the crowd.

It was over all too quickly.
