Waiting for the parade!
To get a good spot to view the parade you have to arrive early, so grab a snack or beverage to enjoy while you people watch as you wait.
Get your snack/ beverage either prior to getting your spot or send one of you group to purchase your treats while you hold their place.
It helps to keep young children busy while waiting especially when it is hot.
It's also fun to talk to people beside you while waiting. That's how we learned about the special Birthday Buttons!
