Louie Louie Parade....

This Friday, downtown, at 3:30. Proceeds benefit the St. Jude's Childrens Hospital. Begins at the Peoria Civic Center and moves toward the river, with a fun party on the riverfront afterwards. Kind of a silly event but lots of fun. Look for me with the RE/MAX Group!

Sounds like fun. And silly. Which are two very good things.

Thanks for visiting my blog, Diane. I hope we will become good blog buddies!

I am thinking of taking my kids to the parade today and then to see the bands play. Do you think the band part, at the Landing, is appropriate for 12 and 13 year olds? Do you think other people will bring kids?

Jennifer, I think all river-front activities are by their very nature "family oriented" and I wouldn't hesitate to bring my teenagers, and even my pre-schoolers. We tend to bring our kids with us everywhere other than bars or perhaps late night weddings. How else are they supposed to learn? If they happen to overhear inappropriate language or comments we teach them that some things are reserved for "adults only" and they don't need to understand or repeat those things. They seem to be fine with that.

Oh wow, I just got back from this. What a blast! Jennifer, were you there? We had so much fun. At the end of the parade one of the parade participants gave my kids their beach ball and they had a blast kicking it all over the place. This is definately a must do for next year. The band that played on the riverfront after the parade was great too. Anyone know the name of them?

Diane,
My kids ended up with too many friends over to fit in my car. Gosh, I may need to break down and get a minivan.
Glad to hear it was fun.
Was the band JammSammich? They are always really good.

No, it wasn't Jammsamich.. similar kind of music.. pop 70's and 80's hits.. my era ;-)
