Mack-A-Fest Parade

This weekend is Mackinaw's town celebration called the Mack-A-Fest. Two weeks ago Shelby received a letter in the mail with sheet music she had to learn on her own in two weeks to be ready to march with the high school band in the parade. She was really excited about the choice of music. It was "Holiday" by Green Day. She practiced on her own for the last two weeks and then the band practiced together for four hours yesterday before the parade. We were excited because this is Shelby's first high school band performance.

It was also Jadon's first parade. We got there a little early so we could find a spot to sit in the shade and Jadon was watching the normal traffic come through and that was entertaining him. We had no doubt he would enjoy the parade once it began. Jadon did enjoy watching all the fire trucks, the ambulance he rode in last week, and all the people go by.

I took video of Shelby's performance. She is in the middle of the front row.
