River Volunteers in Red
Walking on the river today we encountered a lot of activity. Chairs were lined up for the River Parade. Back in the day my mother used to love to watch the River Parade. We never sat in these chairs, but instead watched them from above. I'm assuming the people in the red shirts are some kind of volunteers as I saw them loaded into boats that were labeled with something or other. I also saw the river going through a final clean up, with those boats with those long arms and nets that pick up all sorts of refuge. We passed by the Arneson River Theatre and saw all the cameras on one side to catch all the action and the stage itself was being dressed up for it's appearance.
