To the editor:

What a terrific rodeo parade! We had a blast! We look forward to it every year. There were so many wonderful entries in the parade. It was very impressive to see the rider saddled up on that massive Longhorn steer, just strolling down the street. Oh, and how many of you men went home and tried doing wheelies on your riding lawnmowers? I do admit to missing the belly dancer this year on the Shriner’s float. We got a kick out of him last year.

Then we enjoyed the Salsa Festival too, and loved the announcer at the Dance Club demonstration. Thought it was funny the way he bantered with the group to join in the fun. The kids enjoyed the train trolley ride around the block. The food was yummy and the snow cones refreshing. Kudos to all who made the parade and festival a success!
