A family tradition during Easter is to go to the Easter Parade in Snohomish, Washington and this year my Girl Scouts Troop got to participate in the parade making it extra special for us. Plus it is the only Parade for Easter in Washington State making it special for everyone else too.
Loads of candy
One of the prerequisite of being in the parade was bringing candy to hand out as we walked the mile and a half stretch down 1st street.
Last year when we were sitting on the sidelines, we gathered a whole basket of candy. So I knew I needed to pick up a lot of candy. I found Tootsies frooties assorted 5lb (2.27kg) from Amazon to be the best value because it offered over 700 pieces of candy for less than $20.
Even with more than 700 pieces, my troop was so good about giving everyone a candy that it didn’t last the whole parade. Another troop was kind enough to share their candy with us. Now I know for next year.
I am so lucky to have so many wonderful parent helpers in our troop. There was no way I could have watched all the girls handing out candy on both sides of the street. We all had a great time! Happy belated Easter!
