Every year in the beginning of May, our city celebrates with a Dogwood Parade. Usually it's either real cold or real rainy, but the weather cooperated with us this time.
Because it's our city's 175th birthday we had a longer than normal parade, with 145 entries. Most of it was just a bunch of people walking for their cause but there were a handful of characters and floats.

My daughter (a.k.a. Ginja Ninja) and my brother (a.k.a. Coach) were part of DRDC's parade entry. They were second to last in the parade, so there was no chance of me skipping out early. They kept the crowd entertained with stunts and jumps.
