Hats Off in Celebration

Remember in the float barn I said this arrangement was beautiful, but I didn't think it was finished, now it is!

This is where the TV Camera and official photographers get there shots, known as TV corner.

Another view of TV corner, the viewers bleachers, in my opinion the best seats on the parade route. We were sitting maybe a block away, Dave and I walked down before the parade started.
