State Fair Parade 2008

So I helped A with the parade this year, she is on the parade committee. This was my first year - woooo hooo! I thought I would be helping with traffic or barricades .... well I rode on the golf cart with her up and down the parade - up close and personal - yikes !
I loved the Isiserettes, the Budweiser Clydesdale's, all the floats and more.
Maybe one of the coolest things - was that the Space Center was overhead at 8:55pm - it moved really fast in the sky and was very bright and shiny - and NASA astronaut Peggy Whitson was the parade marshal this year.

The theme this year was U Gotta Love It !
