Merrie Monarch Festival
The parade was today which I believe mark's the end of the Merrie Monarch festival. The parades in Blacksburg were mostly about throwing candy at people. Here there was only one candy thrower and a ton of horses and smiling people. The weather was great as usual and the parade paraded right down our street in front of the shop. My boss set out 4 folding chairs for us. It was a good time.
There were lots and lots of horses and many of them had extravagant lei's. Each rider, especially the women, looked like royalty right out of Lord of the Rings.
