Once we learned our spot in the parade, several staff members decorated the bus while waiting for our cue to start driving. It was a perfect day for a parade, and there was not an empty seat on the bus.
The residents were very excited to be in the parade, and were dressed in their red, white, and blue – some with hats and some with funny wigs. Hundreds of people watched on each block of the parade route. There were so many people there that they were lined up on the sidewalks and in the streets, and the residents had a wonderful time waving at the spectators. We all got back to Primrose just in time for a wonderful July 4th cookout.
