Whew! We did it again. We all survived the 2007 Pacific Whale Foundation's Annual Whale Day Parade and Outdoor Craft Fair / Concert. It was a blast as usual and we did good in the parade. Actually, we did better than good, we did GREAT! Shaka Divers and the Double~Bubble Mermaids had an unrivaled showing in the parade this year and we took First Place as the Best Float of the entire parade! Wooo Hooo!!!! Yeah Baby! It feels good! We had a big picture make the local Maui Weekly newspaper and a lot of people got to enjoy a Free Bubble Bath thanks to us!
I really have to give thanks to all of the people who participated this year. I couldn't have done it without each and every one of you. Thank You! The parade watchers thank you too! And so do the judges! I met one of them at Ulua Beach yesterday and she told me how much fun they thought we were having. She said they just had to vote for us!! Awesome! That's what we were there for to have fun and spread some love, laughter and Aloha. It was very enjoyable to see the people smile and wave their shaka's at us as we inched down the street. There was about a bazillion bubbles in the air too!
This was the first year we had a booth too. It gave is a chance to give away our balloons and showcase some of my underwater photography. Next year, the booth will be better and we should move some photos. It was in a great location this year, right out on the main drag at the crafts fair. Monet hung out in her Mermaid outfit and met with some of the visitors. It was a lot of fun for everyone!
Here's a couple of pictures from the day. See you all next February! Be sure to get to the parade!
