People started to gather in the afternoon. There was music and food available at both ends of town. The 4-H square dancers...including Johanna, Grady and Jack....danced on a wagon. They were warned not to fall off.
A raw, cold wind couldn't dampen the spirit of the party. I had made skirts and ties and had the outfits all planned....and then scrambled to find 'green' warm outerwear. Those skirts could fit over the snowpants!
The floats were all so creative....
Even Freddie Flinstone's car made an appearance.
Terry wanted to play the part of "The Irish Washerwoman"....and no one argued with that.
Santa even made an appearance in the crowd. Sophie was screaming and waving at him!
I had given Jack the video camera. Here is a clip of what it was like on our float and the crowd on the streets...
As the sun set, the parade lit up. Even most of the homes in town were decorated with green lights and decorations.
