It’s a springtime rite of passage to attend the Blossomtime Parade. Each day for the month and a half before, we watch ‘our band’, the local Catholic high school practice their routine, slowly improving their music and their dance steps.
This year was no different, it was great fun to be part of the community as a whole, to pack a lunch and picnic with the family. The queens were beautiful, the floats were well made, and the music was enjoyable. What a great afternoon!
