What an incredible time and opportunity to participate in the 37th Annual St. Patrick's Day Parade in downtown Raleigh, NC last week! This was the first parade experience for All The PROPS and we were all extremely thankful the sun came out and pushed away the rainy weather we've become accustomed to in recent months. The cool air and wind made it a little chilly in the beginning, but all of that soon went away once the parade began!
The streets were lined up with thousands of people cheering and dressed in some fantastic and creative attire which of course made All The PROPS team feel at home like we were participating inside of an enormous Photobooth!
As a kid I always remembered when a business would hand out candy, wooden nickels, and little trinkets so in this fashion we decided to follow our Photobooth theme by handing out small glittery green hats with All The PROPS logo mounted to the front - 500 hats along with 60 pounds of candy. We all thought that would get us through the parade but instead realized we could have easily doubled or even tripled that number!
I'm extremely thankful for the planning and effort to provide such a fun and entertaining event for so many people to watch and participate and look forward to next year!
