The Defeat of Jesse James Days 2008

No, it's not a gang of delegates to Republican National Convention hightailing it out of Minnesota; it's the 2008 Defeat of Jesse James Days parade. During Defeat of Jesse James Days, this modern James Gang stages reenactments of the unsuccessful raid on Northfield's First National Bank that took place 132 years ago today.
