We played for the Allamdale parade a couple of times in the past, riding on a flatbed truck. This year, we were played at the finish area of the parade on Far West, at Doss Elementary. We got that gig because the wife of one of our members teaches at Doss. Since we are a volunteer group, anything a member is involved in gets first choice.
They estimated 800 to 1000 folks would hear us, but, due to the weather, I think far fewer folks showed up.
It was a lot more fun than sitting in that 11-mile traffic jam trying to get to Wllie's picnic like a few thousand folks did. I could have predicted that when I saw the stream of traffic flowing through Oak Hill and out TX 71.
