The media reported 250,000 came out for the Starlight Parade on Friday, May 29. Many responded to my sign with smiles and yelling, "Hi, Amanda!" - so very fun. Thanks to the Royal Rosarians who extended an invitation to everyone on the Council to walk with them. I have two other assignments in the Rose Festival: representing the Council at the Junior Parade on Wednesday afternoon, and leading the Grand Floral Walk (walking the route an hour before the Grand Floral Parade) with Commissioner Fish.
