There is not many events as colourful and loud as Vaisakhi! I was happy to watch the parade come in with Stan the Ram from Northland Chrysler Jeep Dodge. Stan was a very good sport, giving hugs and explosions to all those who asked. Stan even eyed up the Dodge truck that I drive. Then before we knew it the parade started to arrive. Boy could you hear it a mile away, with performances, cheering children and big engines it was hard to miss! All of these things were decked out in beautiful colours, which really added to the festive flair. There was even a great bunch of kids on one of the floats who really wanted a selfie, so of course I complied and then after the parade had finished, I headed over to check out what was smelling so good! There was so much food, and so many people all having a great time, then speeches and a balloon release happened! As Shirley Bond said “Next year bring a friend” and next year I hope to do just that!
