Rob and I picked out some prime spots to watch prior to the parade and marked our turf with some blankets. It paid off because we had a great spot to see the whole parade. Karys and Gracie were excited to watch the parade go by! Notice the jackets...it was really cold, probably around 45 to 50 degrees.
Karys was really excited about the windmill float, she waved to the kids riding on the float!
Royalty! Andrea, Amy, Sarah and Heather representing the 2002 Tulip Court.
There was a crazy ice cream truck float in the parade and they were handing out ice cream cones...Karys got one!
The Siskow's and the Pine's joined us for the parade and an afternoon of fun in Pella.
Although not Dutch, these guys were awesome...bagpipes, drums and kilts, simply awesome!
These guys were demonstrating their fighting skills...very entertaining!
Joni, Heather and Dawn, all smiles after the parade.
Joni thought Heather's costume was great...and she could fit under Heather's kraplap
Derek and Aaron both enjoyed some of Pella's fine foods...Pella Bologna on a stick, Aaron enjoyed his while counting his money!
The gals also stood in line for the famous paffertjies...the ladies loved theirs!
While the guys were less than impressed with the tiny pancakes.
