My favorite time of the year on Balboa Island! Shut down Marine Ave for the annual parade and enjoy the entertainment of the locals. Scarlett, Oliver and I had a blast watching the parade and enjoying the after-party. Did you get to see the parade? Were you in it? Next year we are going to get in the lineup… I’m pretty sure that’s what Chris Crosson Sr. was trying to tell me from his amazing Sand Castle Kit float.
