I enjoy the Peony Festival. The parade isn't what it was when I was a kid but my kids like it.

Can't imagine 100,000 people came to it back in the day ... that's what they say though.

Back in the day it was fabulous!!! Floats were like the Rose Parade but made of peonies. There were tons of people. If I remember correctly there were even 2 parades, one in the afternoon and a hugh one at night.

Maybe VW Historical Society has pictures. I know my daughter has some old postcards of the floats.

Did any of you go to Fountain Park today or to the concert?
I did not, the weather was awful. I just wondered if it was fairly well attended.

Didn't even know that there was anything going on in the park. Way to advertise.

Well I don't subscribe to either paper. And I've never stepped one foot in the visitors bureau. Some flyers or mailers would've worked. Something on the local news.

There is always art in the park, just like there is always stuff at the fairground. That's what it's about. The parade is always at 5 and there is always entertainment at the park beforehand. There is a website, advertising in both papers and online, as well as festival guides which are also being handed out uptown, the fairgrounds and some stores.

vwindependent is free online news (meaning no subscription needed)and you obviously have internet access. If you want spoon feeding, go home to mama, unless you already live in her basement.

You don't have to subscribe to the papers; you are online aren't you? so are both papers and all the information was listed in both online editions. You don't even have to sign up just go to http://timesbulletin.com/index.asp or http://thevwindependent.com/ to view either paper. As for the mailings without a completely accurate mailing list the post office will charge a lot for mail that can't be delivered not to mention the original postage; this can ad up quickly.

Oh, the good ol days, yes it was a spectacular parade and the peony flowers were always in bloom at the time of the parade which made it even more beautiful.Anybody know why they still call it The Peony Parade and never any peonies blooming when they have it? Just curious.
