Here's how we spent Saturday. I have a friend who manages the North Branch, Minnesota Ambassadors. Their main job is to do the "float wave" in small town parades. This one was the North Hudson Pepper Festival. This is how North Hudson, Wisconsin raises money for its schools. A parade down main street with a big carnival at the end.

Here, the cars are in line:

Sky was actually mostly sunny and the temp was about 75F--so, to me, it was perfect. We were given special parking in a secure area after the parade so we could go to the carnival. Those girls were in mud wrestling contest and a spaghetti eating contest.

I've been tempted to offer up the SL for the local 4th of July parade but was worried whether the convertible boot could withstand the weight of someone sitting on it. Seems you provided my answer.

Cheers,

I was wondering the same thing. Anyone else have any advice on this one? Possible bad experience stories?
