It’s not everyday that you get to be a part of history. On Monday, the 4th 105.1 The Bull rolled around the historic Marshfield Square for the 143rd Annual Fourth of July Parade! Sure, it was hot, but that didn’t keep folks away as thousands lined the route through town and around the square. The Marshfield 4th of July Parade is the oldest, continuous running, Independence Day parade west of the Mississippi river! Amazing!

Kids snatched up candy tossed from The Bull van. I believe most did better on the 4th than they do on Halloween! There was candy tossed from several floats. I noticed a few kids had a cooler handy to toss then candy into once it hit the pavement. Good idea! They’re likely to have thoughtful parents to thank for that idea. I’m sure who was tossing out chocolate kisses and candy bars but that stuff didn’t stay in solid form for more than a few seconds after hitting the asphalt!

There were some creative parade entries. I snapped a few pics of some of the entries as we lined up to roll through. Most were sponsored by local business owners or had an affiliation with a local church or organization.

It was an amazing event and we here at 105.1 The Bull were honored to be part of the fun! Special thanks to the Webster Electric Co-Operative, Brooks Gas, Your Midwest Ford Dealers, and Clear Creek Golf Carts! God bless America and we’ll see you next year!
