September 07, 2015 - Chapin, SC


On a cloudy day in South Carolina, presidential politics came back to the 2nd primary state. The Chapin Labor Day Parade is no stranger to candidates of all sorts playing political games. Every republican candidate running in this years bloated presidential race was represented on this day, but only Rick Santorum showed up in person.

The most youthful contingent was Marco Rubio's gang, shouting, singing, and all out carrying on all the way through the parade route. Their energy was a sight to behold.

Republican U.S. Representative Joe Wilson, and his son S.C. Attorney General Alan Wilson rode in a WWII era U.S. Army jeep, gripping a gun mounted on top.


The rest of the parade was made up of the typical parade fare: marching bands, cheerleaders, sports teams, beauty queens, Boy Scouts, veterans groups, and various amounts of performers.

It seems that South Carolina just can't shake, it's love for the confederacy.
