Its been a day full of merriment and fun and folks who came out couldn't be more satisfied. Folks were out in full force tonight at the last parade of the season The Order of the Myths.

The crowds were full. People were pleased with the great weather. The throws were amazing as always. The floats were beautiful. There were plenty of beads to share. The bands sounded great and of course, there was no shortage of moon pies.
