Every April in Knoxville we have the Dogwood Art festival. It is a month long event celebrating the local tree. I don't really understand why such a fuss is made about a tree that according to Mindy "smells like a dirty vagina." There is a mini street fair, a music fest, and a parade.
I go to most downtown events, but somehow I have never seen the Dogwood parade. Mindy just happened to get VIP passes to it from her job so we had the prime viewing spots. It definitely is the most impressive parade that Knoxville has. There were large balloons like in the Macy's parade, (Side note: do you know that those balloons have killed people? Google it.) your usual floats, some random marching band from New Jersey, the miniature wrestling ring and of course this.
All I could do was put my head in my hands and weep for humanity.
