Cherokee Parade

I started the day off with a 3mi jog around the RV park here. This is one of the great perks of the RV lifestyle…having new and interesting places to run all of the time. The mountain backdrop and cool temps made for a very pleasant jog.

Today we decided to head to the Annual Cherokee festival parade here in Cherokee, NC. But, first we cooked up a nice lunch. It is soooo nice to be cooking regular meals again and not eating out so much. I grilled up some type of chicken artichoke something-or-other while Lisa prepared something called “tabbouleh”. It was pretty tasty (and healthy too! She’ll have the recipe on her blog is she ever figures out how)…


Kylee wasn’t a fan, though…With lunch all done, Kylee and I got a boost of energy and the bluegrass music we were playing got the best of us and we decided to cut a rug…Then it was off to the Cherokee parade. Just down the road we found a LOT of people lined along the streets waiting for the start of the parade. We couldn’t figure out why all the kids (and some adults) were holding on to empty grocery bags, but once the parade started we figured it out.

Candy was being strewn everywhere!

After a while Kylee just stopped and said, “I don’t want to pick up anymore candy”. Thank Goodness for that! Three weeks before Halloween and we already had enough candy to last us a year.To me the parade was a little disappointing. I was hoping for a little more of a cultural parade; but, instead, it turned out to be a pretty basic town parade with high school floats and local businesses advertising their wares and services. All in all Kylee had a good time, though, and that’s what we were there for.

One of the cuter moments of the parade

Any guesses what his job was?
