I grew up in Columbia, TN. A small town about an hour south of Nashville.
Every year there is a huge event called Mule Day.
What? You never heard of Mule Day! Have you been living under a rock? It has only been going on since the 1800s and is apparently on the top 10 list of events to watch by Homeland Security.
Well, if you haven’t heard about Mule Day before, I totally forgive you.
Truthfully, I am not that into it. But MANY, and I mean MANY, people from Columbia and all around the United States LOVE this event.
People come from all over just to show off their Mules. They buy and sell them, there is a big parade on Saturday, a Liar’s contest, and many more events packed into a few days.
I haven’t been to Mule Day in YEARS! I seriously, cannot remember that last time I went to Mule Day so I thought I would go this year while I was still close to TN.
I thought you guys would like to see some pictures of the parade just so you could experience it for yourself.
Welcome to Mule Day 2011!
That’s the parade in a nutshell! There were many other unique things in the parade- I just didn’t get good pictures of!
So if you are ever in TN the first week of April, make your way down to Columbia for Mule Day festivities! Trust me, it’s interesting! 😉
