Vince has marched in this parade three times. All three times it was so hot – we could fry an egg on the sidewalk. This year, I was thinking I’d be home and not watching the parade, but Nat really, really, enthusiastically wanted to go. And I thought Vince had never seen the parade – one can never really see the parade if you are walking in it. So we went, walking to downtown Rockville with our folding seats over our shoulders. You have to remember that this was the day after the half marathon for me, so the walking was especially slow for me.
So what exactly is in a Hometown Holiday parade? Apparently lots of dancers from Bolivia and also zombies. Oh yeah, and a lot of candy throwing.
