    Here are some shots from the Thursday and Saturday parades. I was a band kid all through college, so I'm partial to the marching bands.

    Some shots from the Bed Races. The teams had to construct a bed with wheels, and then race them down the parade route.

    My wife. She wasn't talking to me, but I get this look from her quite often!

    These guys played a bunch of Beach Boys tunes as they marched. Very cool!

  2. Great set of shots. I liked the bed photos, especially the one that is being carried.

    The expression on your wife's face is hilarious. I bet when she gives you that look, she is about ready to smack you. :biggrin:

    Thanks Rick! Yeah, the wheels came off really early on in the race. Definitely a fun time.

    And that's the look she gives me when I inform her that I need to upgrade from a D40 to D80 already :)
