Free Union Parade 2012

Despite 100 degree temperatures and the largest power outage in Virginia history from a devastating storm that swept thru the region the day before, some hardy Free Union residents sucked it up and pulled off the Free Union Parade. This year there actually were more people in the parade than watching. The Free Union Home Makers banner was left laying on a car in the staging area as there was no one there to carry it.

A special thanks to all those that made the effort to come out and participate. The Albemarle Sheriff department and the AirRaid Juggling Club had large contingents.
