VIDEO: Country Fair Day Parade Highlights

Check out our highlights of the 2012 San Anselmo Country Fair Day Parade, including local youth and characters from San Anselmo resident George Lucas' Star Wars.

 

The San Anselmo Country Fair Day Parade started at 11 a.m. on Sept. 30 and traveled through downtown during the annual country fair. What was your favorite part of the parade? Tell us in the comments!

The music is Cathey Cotten and Elliott's Evil Plan, who were part of the parade.  

And if you took photos or videos on Sunday, we want to see them. You can upload your 2012 Country Fair Day photos and videos here.

It was a fun parade and event, especially nice to watch the Patch table abandon ship about an hour and a half before it was over. Way to support your community 60%.

Patch is owned by AOL (a major corporation) they aren't a local business, folks. So you're lucky they gave any money at all and paid people to be down there.

UrbanTransplant, I'm sorry to hear you're disappointed we didn't stick around until the very end of the country fair. I actually decided to "abandon ship" early because I wanted to make sure I had plenty of time to make the above video and create the separate Country Fair Day photo album, which encourages readers to upload their own videos and photos from the entire day. Unfortunately, I just can't cover everything by myself or work every single weekday and weekend - I need the community's help. My colleagues and I had a great time at our table at the country fair, heard a ton of positive feedback from the community and ran out of all the Patch swag we were giving away. Thanks to everyone who stopped by the table!

PATCH is a great concept for a local online community resource. We had Kelly D, who was great and now we have Jessica M. who is equally great. Jessica had info and pics up about Country Fair Day up on the site before the event even ended. AND hey are basically one-person bureaus who rely on community input and exchange to enhance local content. It was a great day too. We have such a great community, even it the heat! Nice work everyone.

Thanks to Patch for posting the video of the parade which featured my band on the soundtrack. We had a great time being in the parade and playing in the plaza. My band, Elliott's Evil Plan will be playing at Peri's in Fairfax this Saturday night at 9pm. Hope to see you there, and thanks again for the post.
