I think this year the theme of the parade was growing locally and sustainable energy. After watching the parade and catching candy being thrown from the floats we walked around the booths. My mom purchased a great little fabric purse and I bought Grace some painted wooden chop sticks that you put in your hair (made by a local homeschool girl). The heat was getting oppressive. All week the temps were in the low 60's but today it was already 85 by lunch. Once we had seen everything mom took us to lunch.
