A few of us in our neighborhood planned a pretty kick-A party for Pioneer Day. Since we are all new to our development, I figured we needed to start a new tradition. So, we had a parade, a raffle, games, BBQ, fireworks and an award for the "Friendliest Neighbor". As the 3 of us were setting up in my yard, it was 5:55 and the parade was starting at 6:00. There was nobody at my house dropping off food etc. We were wondering where everyone was and worried that we wouldn't have the turn-out we had hoped for. One of my friends called her husband and he said there were 50 + people waiting at the designated parade start. As I started walking over and rounded the corner, this is what I saw! Such excitement.
We had tons of fun and were so pleased that so many neighbors showed up, I counted about 250. Everyone seemed to have had a great time, it went so smooth. I think the tradition has begun!
