As you probably remember I’ve joined a yearlong monthly event called We Are The World Blogfest. Today’s post will be my twelfth and last contribution to this event.
The purpose of this event is to highlight positive news stories, presenting them on your blog on the last Friday of the month.
This almost being the last Friday of March [a month when the last Friday is a Christian holiday] and with the “please post when you can” blessing of the WATWBPTB, I have a short news story to share with you, my gentle readers.
THE NEWS STORY
Last year Dnald (Don) Levy decided that what New Orleans needed was another parade, one specifically dedicated to April 1st.
Following his muse he named this parade Krewe du Fool April Fool’s Day parade, and along with 25 other people he made the parade happen on April Fool’s Day.
This year the Krewe du Fool April Fool’s Day parade will be on this coming Sunday which also happens to be Easter Sunday. The theme of the parade will be “Fool’s Gold” and the marchers will distribute golden eggs.
Follow the link above should you like to join in the parade or cheer them on from the curb.
What’s not to love here?
New Orleans is known for its parades, so another one, dedicated specifically to a silly holiday, fits right into the vibe of the city.
And then to think that one man, for the heck of it, made this parade happen, tickles me to no end.
We’re living in serious times when seemingly insurmountable problems dominate the world news, so from my point of view anyone, or anything, that can add a bit of harmless joy to our lives is the epitome of positive.
And kids, we need more positive.
