Drifter Pride is celebrated year round, but it really shines during this annual event in Colonial Beach.

Candy flies as cars, trucks and golf carts drive by, bands and cheerleaders march by and the entire parade makes it's way down "Main Street"

The lineup used to start near Lenny's Restaurant and from there the units make their way down Colonial Avenue, with the parade participants waving and tossing candy to the townspeople and visitors.

Followed by the Boy Scouts of Troop 258...
