I entered Palio parking lot, to a mass of people and puppets, wondering if I would find our group in the controlled chaos. Soon I spotted many smiling faces, swinging ribbons, and Medusa's snaky hair in the crowd.

After weeks of watching the puppet construction unfold, suddenly the puppets were brought to life
by their skilled puppeteers. As the parade
proceeded down Main Street there were cheers and applause from the crowd who gathered along the street. The children beamed with pride.

When the parade ended hot and tired children collapsed on the curb. Arms and feet were weary but there was also a sense of accomplishment in the air.

Thank you to Ruth and the children for another memorable SK event
