Nothing better than a hometown parade with locals participating for whom you know. It looked like Ozzie and Susan Ona were leading the parade on their bicycles but they drove by too fast for a photo shot. Only a few things missing--not enough people, if any, waving American flags (there were even flags from Cuba, Trinadad and Finland and a few other strange flags in the parade that I did not recognize) and NO patriotic music for the birth of our nation 241 years ago.
The City's float passed by so quickly that it took me a few seconds to realize that four of our commissioners were on the float. They were in disguise. Compass gave out popsicles to kids, even to this one. I passed it on to a little kid in the parade. There were some exceptional floats and I apologize for missing some. Sarah Malega, candidate for District 1 commissioner, and her friends were enthusiastically giving out beads and buttons.
