Admittedly, I felt a little funny about marching as a Mormon. Which was a funny moment for me. But when I first heard about it, my first thought was "oh, they only let Mormons march. That's too bad." Then I remembered that I counted enough to march ("All who wish to march whether currently active LDS and/or former LDS are welcome"). So I felt less like a poser and more like I could go. It was funny to realize I actually don't consider myself a Mormon.
Nevertheless, I really wanted to go, so I went. Kasandra and I went together. We matched in our navy dresses, which was cute.
It was amazing how many people showed up. There were probably 300 Mormons marching. Lots of kids, which was really touching.
After the parade, Kasandra and I went to the festival.
We got matching bracelets.
And visited the whole foods tent.
And it was lovely.
