I escaped from my workplace early so I could see Sweet Teen in the homecoming parade.
I was misinformed about the parade route--so was part of the police force, for that matter.
Missed the parade. Missed my daughter on her float. (Of course, the high school can post all kinds of [un]important messages to our phones and their website. But they are incapable of posting the parade route. And a call to the city offices yielded more misinformation.) Wonder how many other parents missed it. I do know of at least one auntie who missed it. We had a lovely chat about the community while we were waiting for the parade.
However, here are some pictures from one of our city parks. I love these sculptures that reflect our community's history.
And I have to admit that the very best parade I ever saw anywhere took place in the Midwest decades ago when I saw a 10 or 12 year old boy marching down a street with his snare drum and most of the neighborhood kids marching along behind!
