The story started out to be a pictorial look at the parade from a parents view only to go south when the Firemen in the paraed had to divert into a building for an emergency. The parade didn't miss a step as the guided around the parked Fire trucks.
There were a few other hickups, a float breaking down, and a couple of marchers having to drop out along the way. Others really came to the aid to push the dead float or to offer water to the fallen marchers and watch them to make sure they were ok.
All in all I thought it went great, from a parent's point of view that is..
