The parade was long, and there are lots of people from New York there. The kids lined the streets waiting for the candy!
The Ronald McDonald wagon was there along with Ronald himself.
Here is just some of the crowd, and the Ronald McDonald Van going by in the background.
There are those who are opposed to drilling and fracking, and they were right there in the parade, and then trying to convince folks on the street that that all this oil boom is bad stuff.
So, New York, if you don't want to get fracked that's fine with us--get your solar heaters out next winter. I wish we would have whipped a Troy Construction float together, and got in the parade. That way things would have been "fair and balanced," and lots of fun, too. If we are here next year, we will do it.
I controlled my buying because of the long trudge back to the car with about 80% humidity and 90 degree temperature. We just aren't used to this "hot" weather here in PA. It's been about 60 degrees and raining everyday.
I ended my trip at the car behind the Catholic Church, and was reminded Who is really in control of this universe.
