It Didn't Rain on Our Parade
Rain had been forecast and it did indeed rain a few hours before the parade, but luckily it didn't rain during the event.
However the cloudy skies stayed behind to provide a little relief from the sun.Thank goodness because I was in full Pirate garb and was already soaking wet from sweat just from the walk over.
I immediately decided to ditch the long sleeve shirt, you could barely see it anyway. At the end of the parade I would end up ditching the long coat as well.
It was Skye and mine's best costumes to date. Our shopping spree the previous weekend at the Ren Faire definielty helped us with complete our funk pirate attire.
Skye had marched in the Inman Park parade the year before. I was in working in New Orleans, so this year was my first go at it.
And I had a blast.
I danced to the funky music the pirate ship was playing having a great time. Although by the end I had a good blister going on from my brand new pirate boots. The good thing was that they were pretty comfortable otherwise and I could dance, play and get funky in them.
Skye helped lead our little crew with her hooping skills.
It was great fun hanging out with my Funk Pirate/ Circus Combustus family.
We didn't really do much at the festival even though it goes on for 2 days and is literally a stone's throw away.
