FOLSOM (CBS13) – Someone swiped an Uncle Sam costume during the Folsom Pro Rodeo Thursday night and now the owner is asking people to keep an eye on the red, white, and blue outfit before the town’s next big parade.
Adam Frick posted on Facebook Friday saying, “someone (most likely drunk) stole the sweat-soaked costume while I was working in the arena… If you see someone hungover wearing this hat and glasses, uh, you know where they came from.”READ MORE: Helicopter Carrying Multiple People Crashes Near Colusa, FAA Says
Frick bought the costume in 2004 in order to add a patriotic element to the Folsom Pro Rodeo and a neighborhood 4th of July parade. In subsequent years he has added beads, sunglasses, and other accessories to “enhance the outfit.” He’s worn it in a number of parades and area events.READ MORE: 45 Structures Now Destroyed As Dixie Fire Grows To 244,888 Acres
