It felt good to march in the International Women’s Day parade today – great energy and a wide spectrum of participants. The march ran from McSpadden Park down Commercial Drive and up Adanac Street to the WISE Hall. I skipped the community festival, as the little dog had had enough by that point, but the crowd was amazing, filling the hall and spilling out onto the street.
Here are some pre-march photos for you:

Thanks for stopping by, Rose. Making and maintaining connections in the blogosphere can be challenging – it’s great that projects like yours are helping to facilitate this for people. 🙂
Hi Teresa, the WordPress Challenge has really helped but I wanted to take it a step further and so far it’s working.
It’s also inspired others to try some of their own challenges. 🙂
So glad to see your photos and hear it went well. Happy International Women’s Day to you!
How fabulous that you and your little dog marched in the parade, Teresa! I can imagine how being there would be so energizing and inspiring! It just looks like so much fun.
It was fun, Elaine! She did really well, too, despite the crowd.
