"Music tells a story and opens us to all possibilities for good, all possibilities of miracles, opens us to life's wonderful surprises."
The Carol Stream 4th OF JULY Parade is incredible, considering it is a hometown municipal parade.
Beauty And The Beast was our Library's contribution to the Fairy Tale theme this year. The parade route is Lies Road between County Farm and Fountain Drive in Carol Stream. While only a mile and 1/2, Belle was beautiful and enchanting on the Library float waving and smiling at the kids along the route. The Beast's costume was so good that he was elected "Mayor Of The Parade" He was also appropriately ferocious, flashing and nashing his teeth as well as clawing the air to the thrill of the little kids watching the float go by. We always enjoy the professionalism and imagination that Clare and her crew put into their work. I can't wait to see what they will come up with for next year!
