Diving for Candy
Today was the Great River Days parade, a yearly event here
in this Iowa river town. It is a parade
complete with the marching band, various rescue vehicles proudly displaying
their sirens and lights, and lots of local entries. Children lined the curb, candy bags in hand;
waiting for what they hoped would be a deluge of candy. Teenagers trying to appear as if they didn’t
really want to scramble after the candy stood in little groups along the
sidewalk. Grandparents and parents watch
the little ones as they make sorties from the candy bag to the curb. Children learn to wave and look cute in an
attempt to win over the candy throwers – it works.
