Was the whole bike going backward, or did he have it set up so it would pedal backward...Err, forward?

If you answer with just "yes", I'm gonna slap ya silly! :D

Nice pics you posted, Lisa. It was a whole new world for ya, eh!? So glad you got to experience it. And even knew on of the parade participants to boot!

Great pics of old cars. I reckon old people like old cars, eh? Er, uhhh, welp, lemme rephrase that somehow. :>)

Thanks for posting! Maybe next year a DG Roundup should be centered around Tater Day, eh?

No way Shoe! Tater Day is best not observed by a crowd...(or a Tater Day Tour) It's already way too crowded. Locals leave town, and businesses close. The banks in town even have special permission from the Feds to not open for Tater Day.

By the way, Lisa the guy on the bike isn't the man I thought it was. Different guy.

I hear ya, Melody. Reckon that is how it is in our little town when we have our annual Hog Day event. It's gotten so big that shy people like me tend to lurk from a distance!

Happy Day to all!

Well, Reynoldsburg has its tomato festival and Circleville has the pumpkin show. Each includes its namesake prepared and served in any number of ways. :)

when we lived in Louisiana we got out of town for Mardi Gras...
At first Sally didn't want to go to the Tater Day parade, she thought they were going to throw Taters at us!

Tell Sally I don't blame her! Who'd want to be bonked in the head with a tater? :D
