It seems that with summer comes many parades…at least around our area. I went on a tour of a candy factory a few weeks ago and picked up some different kinds of taffy that we used as part of our date. What parade is complete without taffy? We did some taffy tasting to start. Some of our favorite flavors were red licorice, buttered popcorn, and macadamia nut. We would pass on the eggnog flavored taffy next time.
As we munched on taffy we looked up some facts about parades. Did you know that floats originate from medieval times? We didn’t! To round out our date we watched slides of this year’s Rose parade. Talk about some incredible floats!
