My daughter stopped by long enough to just drop something of mine off. She took her family to the Starlight Parade last night.
I don't know if the parade is the "official kick off" to the week long Rose Festival celebration or not, but it is to most of the folks around here. This is a somewhat short, night-parade that wends through the downtown area. It has grown over the years. I can remember when it was very informal and could barely be considered a parade by most standards. But now it is a 'bonified' paaa-rade!
'Mom' said Darius really got into the parade.... he danced and danced and then he marched and marched. Sounds like he made a memory or two. Of course it rained... and a small blessing was that it started towards the end of the event.
