I don't know of any other town that has as many parades as this town. I can't tell you how many Saturday's I've been woken up to cheers, claps, honks, and sirens as parades or the annual marathon that comes through town right out side my window!!! Fair Oaks comes up with any excuse to have a parade (much like my mom comes up with any excuse to celebrate a holiday!). This weekend is Spring Fest, I'm not really sure what Spring Fest is, all I know is that it's parade worthy! Spring Fest is actually two days long, so if I have some extra time tomorrow I might walk over to Old Fair Oaks and check it out.
Normally I watch the parades and photograph them from my window (mostly because they wake me up and I'm not presentable to the world), but as I was doing that this morning I realized that I was missing out. So I threw on some clothes and went outside to join in on the parade celebrations!!

There are always great sights to behold in our Parades
This girl was part of the gymnastics group; she was walking down
the street like that, kind of freaky!
The guy who was driving this truck hopped out while it was
still moving (very slowly) to give me come candy!
Here are more pictures from the parade, enjoy!
