Pitt State Homecoming Parade
Last Saturday was the Pitt State University Homecoming Parade. This parade is also the same day as the very large Maple Leaf Parade in Carthage MO. The Maple Leaf parade is the one that we have normally attended since Louie and I started dating. Last year it was as much fun. They really didn’t have any floats and didn’t throw any candy. Getting the candy is most of the fun of a parade so this year we decided to attend the Pitt State Parade. This is a small town and mostly made up of College living. I was not expecting a very big parade. Sort of like the Girard parade. I thought it was going to be small and it was large. This parade had over 150 entries and lasted about an hour and a half. They had a lot of floats and a ton of Candy. Good thing I brought a bag for Austin. I don’t think there was any entries that past that didn’t throw out candy. We were very happy with our decision to go to this parade. Not only a ton of candy, a lot of floats, but we also didn’t have to get up too early for it. So triple bonus on this parade. I have to say we will probably stick to this parade unless they change the Maple Leaf to allow candy and gets floats back in it.
Alijah slept through his first and second parade. Only one more parade this year, so we will see if he is awake for that one or not.
