Happy Labor Day

A man, woman and young boy sit in a horse-drawn buggy next to a decorated truck ready for a Labor Day celebration in Alamosa (Alamosa County), Colorado. They wear suits and hats; the young boy has a ribbon sash criss-crossed over his suit that has a small American flag attached to it. The truck is decorated with sheaves of wheat and plants. In the rear is a taxidermic eagle, with an American flag in its beak, and a stuffed mule deer head.
