In the rain? Sure, why not. Another annual neighbourhood festival/parade, known as the Teddy Bear Picnic. They even have nurses on site to provide teddy checkups and prescribe them a clean bill of health. It started to drip in the morning, but thankfully never settled into full downpour.
terrible shot of me, but I am rarely in photos, so I have to take what I can get (and I am too lazy to edit it)
mounties and bagpipes to start. Not cliche or anything
James Dean of the Bear crowd
a pirate Shriner. Whoda thunk it?
looking for the next big thing:
which was the Falun Gong marching band
We moved onto the fairgrounds to find some friendly faces
fun was had by all
showing off her massive intelligence - rings are mastered, so next = astro physics!
who thought this was a good thing to bring to a children's festival?
tensions are starting to run high
and on that note, bye bye!
