I don't think anyone could have asked for anything more out of Saturday's parade. It was gorgeous weather, buckets of fun, and from most accounts, people got home safe and sound. I got to see the parade from a different perspective this year, being in the parade rather than watching from the sidelines. I joined one of the "floats" from our sister station, Today's Talk 1490, on a big ol' BS Spreader heading down the parade route. We played music, had a great time and handed out can coozies to the crowd. It was awesome to see the throngs of people up and down the parade route and one thing I learned is if the crowd thinks you're having a good time, they'll have a good time with you. Jumping up and down and dancing on the float all day left me exhausted, as I went home promptly after to pass out for awhile. Thanks to all that came out to support the La Crosse Radio Group, and happy festing for the rest of Oktoberfest!
