Tulip Festival 2021- Street scrubbing.

On the last parade of Tulip Festival, they have an alumni band march for whatever alumni who played in high school to walk again if they want. Kley loves it! What a fun tradition. The girls loved spotting Kley in the parade! Band wasn't very cool in my high school, but it was in Kley's. 

This is a new float for this year (the 80th Tulip Festival)- I love it!

Grandma and Grandpa were here for the weekend too- such fun to share the festivities with them!

Street scrubbing! So fun! The girls were a little impatient/hot waiting for it to start, but once we got going they did amazing! They walked the entire route in their wooden shoes and did great! Overall it went very well, better than expected. In case you don't know, street scrubbing it a Dutch tradition before the parade starts where the men throw water on the street, and the women scrub the streets to "clean" them before the queen and her court walk on them. Special to share in this tradition!

Sweet little Dutch girls!

Love my family!

What a wonderful Tulip Festival!
