Blessi and the Fathoms O'Fun Parade

Last year, Blessi and I walked in our first ever parade last year--the Fathoms of Fun in Port Orchard, WA.  We went as a member of the Kitsap Saddle Club.  This is a great venue for a first time parade--lots of support from the KSC, a staging area with lots of grass along the side of the road for horse grazing, short distance, and a finish point right by the horse trailers.

I wasn't sure how Blessi was going to react so I decided to lead him in the parade.  At first, he was a bit impatient since we were paired up with a slower walking Quarter Horse.  After we switched partners and were matched with a faster walking horse, Blessi was quite happy.

About half way through the parade, Blessi started thinking about going to visit the parade watchers along the side of the road.  He was particularly interested in the people eating pizza by the side of the road.  Blessi was certain that they would share.  He also was fascinated with the helium balloon vendor.  Blessi suggested several times that we should go visit that guy.

And the Kitsap Saddle Club Royal Court were absolutely adorable in their matching outfits--check it out.
