YOU NEVER KNOW when a clown in a parade – like this one in Narrowsburg on Sunday – will get in a water fight while “taking” someone’s picture on Main Street! The camera was evidently just a cover for a water gun.

After the Flood,
A Parade? Certainly!

By Susan LeBar
NARROWSBURG — July 7, 2006 – On June 28, floodwaters ripped through much of Sullivan County, but just a few days later on July 2, the Annual Narrowsburg Fourth of July Parade took its first step at 1 p.m. sharp.
The parade was in question, due to the flood damage throughout the county, but organizers decided that the area needed a boost – and the parade went on.
Despite the small crowd, a great time was had by all. Local fire departments proudly showed off their trucks, and parade marchers waved and smiled as they passed by.
One viewer noted, "This is just what I needed – just a little distraction from everything else we experienced. I am so glad they still held the parade."
After the parade, many attendees participated in the very first Peddler's Market, which was held in the Tusten-Cochecton Library’s parking lot. The rest of the day was spent walking the area, in and out of the shops, waiting for the annual fireworks display, which most said proved to be bigger and better than prior years.
