Time for tiny stars to shine

The local schools let out early for the annual ritual of the Kiddie Parade, held separately so that the kids are then free to be spectators for the later Grand Parade. Parents and friends lined the streets for the event which featured children in costume, on floats, riding tiny vehicles, and making music. This year, in another effort to appease the Town Council, the parade ran fewer blocks and was held uptown, away from the main business district. Though spirits were high, for some paradegoers the new route sent a troubling message.
