Brownie Troup 402 follows closely behind the pack mule.

E. Clampus Vitus is a fixture of Humbug Day, and make the best hamburgers in Nevada County as attested by the long line.

Happy waves

Even bigger smile.  And that's the end of the parade! Total elapsed time -- maybe two minutes.

Crowd moves to each side of Main Street in preparation for water canon demonstration.

Those on the street are well behind the canon, which is on the left.

Here are those happy children again.
