What makes this parade fun is that it is an entirely community-based event. People of all ages participate in groups with different themes; the sun, the sea, the jungle. Watching a 65 year-old man perform the same dance routine alongside a 16 year-old girl is pure entertainment.
Go ahead and call this woman "Little Miss Sunshine." I dare you.
That was fun, Mairead!
Whenever we take a trip to Olympia, it seems like a really great place to live. But between the way Heather feeds us when we visit (she baked an improvised rhubarb-cherry crumble on a pie crust base that was so, so very good) and the irresistible Bread Peddler, it's probably a good thing for my waistline that we're over 100 miles away.
