  1. Visiting our daughter and family in Ashville, we enjoyed participating in watching the parade and our Grandada KK Kolesar with the Capital City gymnists, reminded us of our home town in Steeleville,Ill…..

  2. Love the bike/unicycle stuff! And the stilt people are great! I will make a point not to miss next year’s parade.
