To raise money the Children's Museum held a Parade downtown Appleton that ran down College Avenue just outside my office. A group of friends and I quickly pulled together decorations and the theme "the brew crew" which represents the Major League baseball team here in Wisconsin. There were over 1,200 kids registered to participate but it seemed like there was double that when we started walking down the street. We had 9 kids in our group and they all had a blast. After the parade we all celebrated in the park with music, goodie bags and food.
