2008 Sylva Fireworks

Posted by Thunder Pig on July 7, 2008

I recorded the above on Main Street in Sylva, North Carolina on Friday night.

I had a great time at all the events I went to, and will be getting video and photos of the other stuff up today and tomorrow (I hope).

I am editing the dedication of the flag pole at the Veteran’s Memorial Park. There was no sound system at the ceremony, and none of the words are understandable from any of the participants, so I will have to do a voice over…and I hate doing that, and will put it off as long as I can.

My internet service was down all weekend, and my email box is full. So, if you sent me an email, please be patient. I will be answering them in the order I received them.

Also, Senator Jesse Helms has died, and I will have a tribute to him Wednesday or Thursday. Three Presidents (John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, and James Monroe) and one Vice-President (Hannibal Hamlin) also died on the 4th of July. Jesse lived a good life, served this nation well, and we could use a few more like him.

Sylva Christmas Parade

Posted by Thunder Pig on December 3, 2007

I accidentally attended the Christmas Parade in Sylva on Saturday after attending a celebration of my maternal grandparents’ 62nd Wedding Anniversary.

Since I always have a camera in tow, I found a parking spot, and waited, and waited, and darkness fell. Then the parade made it’s way to Walnut and W. Main where I was camped out.

I think there will be three parts (I have already edited two parts) for the whole parade…it kinda broke apart at the end with the slower floats and walkers not keeping time…or did the front run off and leave the end? You decide.

Part One

Part Two

Part Three (uploaded and processing at youtube…)
