Good decision. The weather was beautiful this evening. Bob, Delia (my co-worker), and I were given tickets from Fantasy Tours to attend the River Parade. Some of their attendees had to cancel and, rather than letting the tickets go to waste, the Wagon Master gave us the unused tickets. (A family visiting the RV park also got to attend.)
We rode the bus downtown and walked a few blocks to our seats. If it had rained we would have lucked out because our seats were under a bridge.
Delia loaned me one of her Fiesta headdresses to wear for the evening. You can't see them, but there are flowing curled ribbons hanging down our backs.

Back to the River Parade...Bob came separately as he had a doctor's appointment on the other side of town. By the time he arrived, he had only missed four river floats. Seems they were having trouble getting the parade going, so there was quite a wait between floats at the beginning.
