Classic Cars – Grand Parade- Kick Off St. Raphael’s Bazaar

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

A police car. The Bomb Squad.  A trolley.  About 8 classic cars.  Catch some candy and Mardi Gras beads.  The Boy Scouts marched,  then a Bagpipe and Drum group, the Morningside Cheerleaders.

We had a lot of fun watching the parade in the Morningside neighborhood, not too far from home.

We went to the festival and the man in the information booth was a colleague from the first school I taught in the city -1989.  Small world.  We had a lot of fun and the grandkids loved the spin art and crafts in the Kid Zone.  They loved jumping the bouncy house.

On the way home we drove to Giant Eagle and got ice cream and cones to eat at home. Fresh berries.  Summer!

  8. Perfect: the red Mustang (my dream car) with the older Midwestern style homes. Reminds me of my teen years in southern Indiana in the 1960s.

    • Southern Indiana? Woot! I grew up in Northern Indiana, but when to school at IU in Bloomington. I *heart* Indiana. :)
