Rittman Sleepwalker Festival Parade

We spent this evening at a co-worker's home in Rittman where we had the pleasure of enjoying the parade that kicks off the Rittman Sleepwalker Festival.  Charlene's home is at the beginning of the parade route and even though we didn't allow him to run into the street to retrieve it, Matthew still came home with about 3/4 of a gallon size Ziplock bag full of candy!  The parade was wonderful and lasted close to 40 minutes - similar to the parades I recall from my own youth, when the floats seemed to creep by and the parade candy was plentiful, different from most of the parades we witness today that rarely last more than ten minutes and you're lucky if you catch one or two pieces of candy!

Aside from the parade, Charlene really made the evening special by providing pizza and drinks for her guests (not only did we have pizza for dnner, but she also sent some home with us for lunch tomorrow).  She was an excellent hostess and we had more fun tonight than we've had in a while!  I took a little video when we got home of Matthew thanking Charlene for having us over!
