Vintage Parade into Bozeman

What a blast that was. 83 trailers all in a row and the cruise around the campus to our final grassy parking spot was great fun. Everybody waved to us. I did hear a Fed-Ex driver offer a different kind of expression, upset that he had to wait so long while we all rolled through (yes, he was quite unhappy).
I took a panograph while we were all in staging. The full size version can be seen at HERE.
I am quite looking forward to going to Madison next year. The VAC is what it's about and how to have fun and we did. I am sure pictures will surface of me wearing my furry bamboo jacket...

The VAC parade was a blast!

We had so much fun with the parade and at the rally in general. I can't say enough good things about the people we met. Here are some pics we took from further back in the parade line...

I have yet to attend a large rally/parade entrance so I'm not certain how it's done.

I have a couple of questions regarding the parade and grand entrance. I imagine people arrive at the campsite over a period of different days. My assumption in that you hook back up and leave the camp area and reassemble outside of the campground to reenter?

#2) if all the trailers and occupants are in the parade, who's left to watch the parade?

It reminds me of the 4th of July Parade my neighborhood does for the kids. They decorate their bikes and wagons and if we're lucky a fire truck comes. Funny thing about it, is that nobody watches. Everyone interested in it is a participant.

Is it well publicized in the local Bozeman area so that a fair share of locals take time out of their day to watch a bunch of us pull our Airstreams into the local field? Bozeman isn't that big to begin with. More people attend Big-10 football games than live in Bozeman, MT.

Not to offend anyone, but just wondering how all the pomp and circumstance works out at the big events. I can imagine the locals getting a little rattled.
