Pictures: Hahira Veterans Day Parade 2022-11-11

I didn’t know there was a Hahira Veterans Day Parade.

Turns out that’s because there wasn’t one since the 1950s, until Friday. WWALS was invited to participate, so we did.

Among the many WWALS members who are veterans, Vanessa and Nick Kroening rode in the parade with their children Jonah and Primrose.

This was all in downtown Hahira, between the Little and Withlacoochee Rivers, on the Withlacoochee and Little River Water Trail.

You can’t quite see Nick and Primose Kroening in the passenger seat. Jonah and Vanessa Kroening are in the raffle kayak. Lindsey Williams is in the truck bed. And I’m driving.
