Well, I didn't make it up there. I live in South Bend and we had white-out conditions and didn't feel like driving two hours in it.

Did anyone go? I would love to see some shots on what I missed.

Excellent photos, especially gven the weather! I did the same last year...Jon and I linked up for the Washington, DC parade in mid-February...it was bitting cold! We went to Starbucks afterwards and got a coffee for each hand to warm up. Like your parade, that one lasted about 30 minutes max!

Great shots! I really like the second one. I wish i could have made it but between freezing and the wife being mad at me for dragging her out to it I think its better I did not go. :-)
