Didn't Rain on Our Parade

Although Lord knows it tried. The start time was shifted by 30 minutes, and once things got really rolling, the rain stopped and the sun came out.

Here, have our local Zydeco Cowboys:

Okay, I'll bite: what's a zydeco cowboy? Also, a parade one can sit for is the height of civilization.

Sitting down: ah ha ha, and you can't even see our encampment because it was behind me: we have a picnic shelter (the pop-up kind, not the kind that needs stakes and ropes) and so do our good friends (the ones with the Cape Cod beach house), so every year, we set them up where a side-street comes into the main drag, and have chairs and a cooler with drinks and snacks. Of course, we were all rather damp this time: the rain was pouring down between the two shelters, although the Mr. tried to position a tarp over the gap.

The Zydeco Cowboyz and Cowgirlz are a group of horse enthusiasts of color. This time around, their non-riding auxiliaries were stomping and dancing the Wobble along ahead of the horses. If you look carefully behind the horses, you can see one member dutifully following with a pan and broom and garbage can on wheels.

Haha. I was expecting they'd cancel the fireworks here (Catonsville) as it was literally pouring so hard you could barely see two feet in front of you; even my kid decided she didn't want to go because it was too gross out a couple of hours before it began. But they held them anyway.

So anyway, looks like you had a good time :D

Yes, we did, although we started out rather damp! A friend had brought her toddler twins (by Metro, in a big double stroller), and I was really worried that she was going to regret the whole thing, but once the parade started, the kidlets were absolutely entranced.
