Community Comes out for Storybook Parade

The Boise-Eliot school held a Storybook Parade today. The entire student body dressed as their favorite story book characters. The parade was really great, I shot some pictures that didnt come out great because of the rain. I wasnt able to identify many of the storybook characters (its been awhile since i read them). I did see Harry Potter though!

The kids were excited and there was a good number of people that came out along Mississippi to watch them. I am happy that this community can host things like this in the neighborhood, it really makes this a great place to live.
