It wasn’t the ideal weather conditions in Lexington today with a steady to often times, gentle rain falling, but it didn’t dampen too many spirits as people came out to the Festival downtown, and then the Parade at 2:00pm.
With people from all walks of life, it was a festive and enjoyable time for all, especially the kids!
There was plenty of food…
And yes… booze! And plenty of extra’s.
I can only imagine some of those who par-took of this grainy beverage weren’t too far from the port-a-potty.
Ronald McDonald showed up for the Parade, and then later that night at UK’s Arboretum the fireworks began promptly at 10:00pm.
So, all-in-all it was a great day to be living in the Bluegrass and people seemed to really enjoy themselves. I know I did. See you next year!
