Sheriff Bill Davis in Fiesta Parade …

with 2 comments

This is a photo of Escambia County Sheriff Bill Davis in a Fiesta Parade from the 1950’s.  Back in the 50’s and 60’s, my favorite part of the parade was usually near the end when the sheriff’s mounted posse would ride.  There always seemed to be at least 30 or 40 horses and riders.  Then they would have inmates from the jail that would be dressed-up in black and stripes cleaning the horse manure droppings from the street.  I always thought that they were clowns until I got older and found out differently.  Thanks for looking …

    • Bill – Thanks for the comment … I do not know if you were around in the 50’s and 60’s and went to the parades in the summer, but I thought that they were great! I do not know if it was because I was young and it did not take a lot to impress me or they seemed to be more diverse than they are now days. Whatever, I really looked forward to the Fiesta Parade or whatever parades they would have during the summer. Thanks again for looking … Frank
