On Friday evening there was a parade that very nearly got rained out but had a great turnout nevertheless.
There were lots of cool floats plus
dancing dogs in dresses,
clowns,At the end of the four hours I could barely stand up straight. The kids were good sports but started losing interest once they realized how much work was involved and each following dog started to get less and less attention, leaving the adults to do more and more. Getting each other wet was a lot more fun for the kids! We had a professional groomer who volunteered to help out as well, and without Kelly I know we wouldn't have raised even half the amount that we did.
and pretty princesses.
On Saturday morning was the 4-H Dog Wash Fundraiser to raise money for our brand-spanking new club, The Lucky Stars.
There were some great concerts throughout the afternoon at the Rotary Park, but my family only attended the last couple by Cape Breton natives. We may have snuck a longish nap after the dog washing. We were all completely wiped out.At the end there was an incredible fireworks display that seemed to last forever!
And because I knit during the concerts, by the end of the evening I finished Colin's socks. What a bonus!
