I love a parade!

Today was our local community's Lynn Valley Day parade. It started off quite slow and easy with decorating our bus.

The normal confusion of a parade marshalling area was all around us though. The air was full of music with the bagpipers tuning up and a school float blasting from their many - and big - speakers. Behind us, Freddy Fuddpucker's band was clowning about with their really colorful instruments. They looked pretty funny in their mad costumes but the music was OK.

We had our own music with us as one of our music groups played country songs for us to dance along with. And dance we did! We do-si-do'd and waltzed and some other forms that could be called jitterbug or jive or however we felt like moving. It was fun to watch the kids along the parade route as they danced and waved to us. It was a perfect cloudless day.

We were pretty glad to get that lemonade at the end after all that singin' and dancin'.

I'll be there next year!

I'm glad you guys had such a good time. That band in the vehicle looks like a lot of fun.
