      Yes I agree Kathy the floats were good. LOL@ John patiently waiting for cup match!!

      I also liked the colorful outfits of the dance and majorette groups. However, there needs to be more smiling especially with the larger dance groups. If dancing is something that you love to do than show it. I mean u dont have to be cheesing the whole way and I understand the tiredness but still when you get in on that performing at least show that you truly enjoy and love it! You just never know who’s watching….

      All in all it was a fun day!
