The next thing is a rib burn off. This is where all the restaurants compete for the best ribs, sauces, and other things. There are other things to do like listen to music and carnival stuff. You can also walk through and see all the floats that will be in the parade. Fred did this one with a friend this year. When Fred came home he said we need to take the kids next year because there was a lot of kid friendly activities.
Then last thing we did was go the parade. Blaiden had been looking forward to this since he went to the 4th parade. This one wasn't as exciting for him because they didn't throw any candy but he loved all the music and balloons. He also thought that the old cars and trucks were trains and kept saying "choo choo." The music was a little loud for Adilene but she is very observant and enjoyed all the action going on around her.
There was a lot that we didn't make it to this year but maybe next year will be better.
