Yesterday was parade day in Vicksburg. More specifically, it was victory parade day for Malcolm Butler. He is a graduate of Vicksburg High School who has gone on to play in the NFL for the New England Patriots. And, you may remember him as the football player who caught the pass interception at the very end of the Super Bowl game giving the Patriots a win over the Seattle Seahawks. What a parade!! There were fabulous marching bands, dancers, scout troops, dignitaries and lots of tricked out pick up trucks. Attendance was phenomenal. The sidewalks were crowded with spectators. The honoree rode in the first parade float. He is in the above picture, wearing the navy blue shirt. He is standing right above the red number 2. The float was built by students from his high school alma mater. What a gift! What a day!!
