Mule Day is a big thing in Columbia, Tennessee
There's a festival...or a fair...and a huge parade.

I'm guessing there were at least 1000 mules and horses.
The parade attracts over 100,000 people.

Mini Mules.  I felt a little sorry for them,
but they didn't seem to be in any distress.

  2. I've ridden a few mules, but I've always been a horse person. Still, it's nice to see a day dedicated to them with such a large turnout!
