  5. Hi Bobbie and everyone who entered the parade, was a spectator or judge - and congrats to the 1sr place winner and all others that will be receiving a prize. I didn't win a prize, but this was so much fun, and that is what a parade is all about - participation or watching as it passes by. I have never been involved in anything on-line like this before and it made me feel like there is more than just me and the monitor - there are real people out there doing wonderful things. Thanks again Bobbie for being both the organizer and Grand Marshall - and to those who generously donated a prize - Macy's in NY couldn't have had a more grander parade.

  6. Congratulation to all the winners!

    A lot of talented people participated in this blog parade.

    This was such a fun way to start off spring and get creative! A blog parade is one of the best ideas I have seen, as much fun as blog parties.

    The way Bobbie formatted, arranged and did this was great and easy to follow and read.

    Great job Bobbie!
