Springtime Tallahassee

For forty years, Tallahassee has celebrated springtime in grand fashion with a downtown festival--funnel cake, kettle corn, cotton candy, the works. The standout performance was the Boys and Girls Club dance troupe. They had talent.

It reminded me of the Maryland State Fair 2006 -- the highlight of which was the pig race. The announcer got so enthused about urging on Wilbur and Babe and the rest of the oinkers. Politicians and voters alike couldn't help but laugh out loud.

The parade floats driving up and down Apalachee were something else, too.

The Best Buy on Apalachee Parkway is in bloom.

Greyhounds are ready for spring.

Greyhounds are ready for anything! Don't mess with the 'hounds if you value your life, mister. :)
