The first parade of the season rolls tonight. It's going to be fair and warm! Should bring out a large crowd of revelers. Last year it was so COLD and we southerners generally don't like getting out in the cold but I was "taking it for the team" with my "Beads for Idaho" campaign. I'll still be shipping some beads to Idaho this year but don't expect to get nearly as many as I did last year, due to the unseasonably WARM weather we are having. Still, it's going to be such fun.
This tree is in the yard of a cafe on the parade route. It gets loaded down every year with errant beads. Fun!
