We have a “dogwood festival parade” in Charlottesville. I love a parade. People in the street. Music.
A communal celebration, in the daylight. The nearest we get in the Old Dominion to a second line.

Bring you flag, your dog, your children your vehicle
I saw a former work colleague getting ready with the lion suit. Woody has been a Lion’s Club member for 32 years.
Great anticipation rules. Wearing the tiara.
A perfect day for a parade, cool temperatures, California quality light.
The main excitement was some vapor and engine noise from a biking contingent. Alas, breaking traction is frowned upon in the Old Dominion.
